LAS VEGAS (AP) Rory McIlroy felt as though he had been spinning his wheels for the last five months as he tried to get better and instead got nowhere. It took the Ryder Cup for him to realize what he had was always good enough.

McIlroy shifted into high gear in Las Vegas.

Starting nine shots behind on the weekend, McIlroy followed a 62 by closing with a 6-under 66 for a one-shot victory over Collin Morikawa on Sunday in the CJ Cup at Summit, his 20th career victory on the PGA Tour.
