CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

What a great weekend for sports in the Queen City with racing, baseball, swimming and golf all going on at the same time!

Kudos to all the great athletes performing in our area, but nobody was more electrifying with their performance than Rory McIlroy. He showed everyone why he's the number one ranked golfer in the world. 

Not only did he beat his competition he did it in record fashion by shooting a course record 61 Saturday and finishing up at 21 under par for a Wells Fargo Championship tournament record winning by an amazing seven shots! All that from a pretty nice and seemingly humble guy. 

The game of golf seems to be in pretty good hands for now. Three majors are left in the 2015 season and it's safe to say that Rory will likely be the favorite in all of them. I was lucky enough to be at Quail Hollow Club Sunday to watch him finish on 18. 

Thanks for the great memories Rory!
