McIlroy wins award

Rory McIlroy

Rory McIlroy is the European Tour's Golfer of the Month for June - not surprisingly after his eight-shot US Open victory.

The 22-year-old became the youngest winner of the title since Bobby Jones in 1923 and did it with a championship-record 16-under-par total.

"I hope this will not be the last Golfer of the Month award I receive after winning a major championship," he said.
