Rory McIlroy has won the BMW PGA Championship thanks to a one-shot victory over Shane Lowry at Wentworth.

The Ulsterman started the day seven shots behind leader Thomas Bjorn, but a six-under-par round of 66 saw him move onto 14-under overall at the close of play.

McIlroy hit an eagle and a birdie on the front nine before sealing the win by putting five birdies on the final nine holes.

A 68 for Lowry put the Irishman on 13-under, while Bjorn's three-over round of 75 saw the Dane finish the day on 12-under with England's Luke Donald.

Scotland's Stephen Gallacher and Englishman Simon Dyson ended the tournament on nine-under, and Sweden's Henrik Stenson was among five players to post a score of eight-under.
