What a season for this guy! We all know that he’s good, but that good..? Rory, the 25-year old kid from Holywood in Northern Ireland strikes back as the 2014 golf phenomenon after winning The Open at Royal Liverpool, the WGC Bridgestone Invitational at Firestone and the last major of the year, the PGA Championship at Valhalla!
The winner takes it all. After great rounds of golf and constant play Rory deservedly crowns himself with two major titles in 2014. This makes it four majors in his books and we all know there will be loads more to come.
It seems that Rory is sort of on a roll, knocking everybody else down with straight drives, intelligent course management and great putting skills. No sight of fatigue, inappetency or elevatedness – just a young man totally enjoying the game and making the most of his current performance.
Even Nick Faldo acknowledges the recent triumphs after he once said that after Rory’s switch to Nike Golf, he might never be as good as before. Well, I guess the opposite is the case. Probably nothing to do with the equipment, but after struggling in the transition phase for a while, he came back with a big bang! It’s not easy to interpret his form back in the days and how much the personal life had influence to that – as well it’s not easy to dig deep on whether the break up with his fiancee made him free up his head, creating a mindset which has led to the fact that he was able to play in such strong physical and mental condition.
Rory, you seriously got a new fan. Really impressive to see what you accomplished this year! Absolutely keeping my fingers crossed for the next tournaments and years to come!
And boy, what a nice house you have down there in Florida! #EnjoyLife #DontSleepOnSummer #WorkHardPlayHard
