Rory McIlroy is on the verge of an all-conquering golf season after his second straight win on the US tour, and his third title in his last four outings, while Tiger Woods has emerged as his nearest challenger.

The 23 year old Northern Irishman's victory yesterday at the BMW Championship in Indiana consolidated his place on top of the world rankings, and both the US and European tour money lists.

Tiger Woods is the new world number two, and he's second behind McIlroy on the US money list.
