What a bummer. Hopefully, it doesn’t have a long term impact on his career.
After being at this tournament for so many years, it was weird to watch it on television. That said, no one was catching Rory this weekend.
Rory is good at golf.
Rough day for Rory.[^fn1] Hopefully he can get it together and put on a good show tomorrow.
[^fn1]: No pun intended.
This is just awesome. Seriously, take 4 minute and watch the whole thing.
I hate when this happens, especially when I’m attending a tournament in person. Why can’t they just put the stars in separate groups so that people can follow them easier without having to fight an enormous crowd?
Rory does **not** look happy.
Pretty hilarious. I especially like “he picked the wrong day to get a tooth ache, everyone knows dentists don’t work on Friday.”
I am posting this just because it involves both golf and a lawsuit. I have not read the complaint, but the numbers quoted look enormous.
200 million dollars. Is there any doubt that he is now the face of golf?
Let me summarize: Rory is the best golfer in the world.
Remember a few weeks ago when people were worried about whether Rory was traveling around the world too much and not paying enough attention to his golf game? That *might* have been an overreaction.
> 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](http://www.golfchannel.com/news/jason-sobel/rory-mcilroy-not-next-tiger-woods/?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter):
> 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.
