Northern Ireland‘s Rory McIlroy has set his sights on winning more majors after his maiden triumph in the US Open.

The 22-year-old led from start to finish at Congressional to become the youngest major champion since Tiger Woods won the Masters in 1997.

“To get my first major out of the way quite early on in my career, especially after what’s happened the last couple of months, feels great,” he said.

“Now, I’m looking forward to putting myself in the picture for many more.”

The new world number four produced rounds of 65, 66, 68 and 69 for a tournament record, 16-under-par total of 268, four better than the previous mark.

McIlroy had previously only won one US Tour title and one European Tour title, but showed his talent in majors by finishing tied for third in last year’s British Open and US PGA Championship.

McIlroy’s victory made him the second youngest European major winner of all time – and the youngest since 1872
