→ Rory Mcllory Dominant at the PGA Championship

No, the final round at Kiawah Island felt different. Despite the fact that he won by a record eight shots — eclipsing Jack Nicklaus’ seven-shot win at the PGA in 1980 — there was no pomp and circumstance as the 23-year-old demolished the field with a clinical 6-under 66 round to win his second major championship in the last two years, becoming the youngest player in golf history to do so.

Rory looked unstoppable this weekend. It was pretty fun to watch. Of course, we should avoid labeling him the next Tiger Woods:

Mostly, though, it’s because no player should be saddled with the responsibility of having to be The Next anyone, especially if that title is followed by the name of a 14-time major champion.

Really good piece from Jason Sobel, who I had lost track of since he left ESPN. I’m glad I found where he’s writing now.
