The 20 year old Northern Irishman Rory McIlroy has overtaken England's Lee Westwood at the top of the European golf tour money list after finishing second at the Hong Kong Open behind Gregory Bourdy.

The Frenchman's win booked him a place in the field for the multi-million dollar season-ending Dubai World Championship later this week.
