Finally, Rory McIlroy had a lead on the final day of a major tournament and this time he won BIG setting all sorts of records in the process. He had a record 268 with 16 under par. This will not erase the disappointment of the Masters at Augusta but will help him in the future when he finds himself in difficult situations.
This victory will go down in the annals next to that of Tiger Woods at Pebble Beach in 2000. Many are now saying that this victory is probably the best in the tournament’s 111 year history. We all will remember what we were doing on Fathers day in 2011.
I think Rory will have a great career. He certainly has the tools, skills and demeanor to win many championships. Golf certainly has a new star other than Tiger woods. There are a lot of young players emerging from all over the world. This will certainly enhance the competition among all the golfers.
Jason Day and Y.E. Yang will certainly be adding competition and drama in the near future. So my friends, the future of golf looks bright indeed. If Tiger can get back to his old form, that will be something special to watch him compete against this young and talented crop of players. Time will tell I guess and we all will be watching.
