Over the past 3 golf tournaments we have seen some brilliant golf from Rory Mcllory who has shown why he is the best golfer in the world right now. First at the Open Championship making it look pretty easy finishing at -17 2 ahead of the field which may seem close, but Mcllory was in control every mistake he made he corrected on the next hole with a birdie. It was masterful performance and this was only the beginning.
The next tournament the WGC Bridgestone with the worlds best he again won but this one wasn’t as smooth as he had to come back in the final round against Sergio Garcia, but once Sergio hit some lose shots one of witch hit a woman’s finger causing her diamond to come out her ring. After that Rory was able to take hold and stay patient to complete this victory, very controlled and relaxed after getting this lead. Rory has been amazing in being to create and control golf shots to set him up for success on every hole very impressive.
This next tournament was one of the craziest major championships in a while, with a rain soaked weekend at Valhalla created a birdie fest and at one point 5 people were tied for the lead haven’t seen that in a while. For Rory this was not easy where on Friday he could of shot himself completely out of it after hitting it out of bounds on 10 leading to a double-bogey then a bogey on 11 dropping him to -2, then doing what Rory does, he birded 4 and a row talk about short memory loss.
Sunday was another battle where at one point he was 3 back heading in to the back 9, but that all after he blistered a 3-wood to 10 feet and converted the eagle after that the people in front of him started faltering making bogies. Taking the lead on 17 didn’t stop the drama, because they were trying to beat the darkness so foursome on 18 happened Rory played so quickly he almost hit his tee shot in the water, and then Phil Mickelson almost chipped in to tie Rory it was amazing to watch best golf tournament in a while!!
Rory is the best right now no question, in his own words ‘he can win a major ugly’ that’s scary to think about what he can do being only 25 and having 4 majors already. The golf world will be fine for years to come, but if Tiger can be half of himself and get healthy we will have some Tiger and Rory battles for al long time. Golf will be fun for a long time!!
