“Rory”ing back from Augusta!

Congratulations to Rory McIlroy from Northern Ireland on his impressive win today at the U.S. Open Golf Championship, just a mere two months after a final round meltdown at the Masters in Augusta Georgia. And my how he did it, by lapping the field and setting numerous records.  At 22 years of age, this humble, young man has shown us all what inner strength, courage, and perseverance are all about. Well done!

Personally, I am looking forward to watching him light up the European and America golf tours.  With ancestors from Strabane, Northern Ireland, I am also very happy for the entire country, which has now produced back-to-back U.S. Open Golf Champions.

    I wasn’t too sure of how Rory would respond after his Masters performance. I believed that he might be another Sergio Garcia and that golf would have to wait even longer for another star to arrive. I guess not. McIlroy is a class act and has the kind of talent that has almost no ceiling to it. The sky is the limit for this guy and it couldn’t happen to a better person. He reacted so well to the situation after the Masters and was a good guy all the way despite the blow out win this weekend. It should to be fun to see this kid perform for the next decade. Let’s hope for the sake of golf that he continues it. Also, you think you could check out my blog cuz I’d love to hear what you have to say http://chrisross91.wordpress.com/2011/06/19/just-what-the-doctor-ordered/
