Rory McIlroy at the Masters and the Ballsiest Interviews in Golf History

Almost two weeks removed from the final round of the Masters, and the shock of watching Rory McIlroy's Sunday collapse is just starting to wear off.

While I thoroughly enjoyed watching the final round, especially the finishing holes, McIlroy's collapse was painful.

I do believe that McIlroy will eventually win multiple majors, but it isn't entirely his physical game that makes me think that.

Sure, he is a talented player, but that doesn't win tournaments, let alone majors. A month short of his 22nd birthday, McIlroy handled his post-round interview like a guy who has been on tour for 10 years.

That is what makes me think that he will win other majors. It would have been simple to turn down an interview, but he didn't. More than that, he was impressive in his interview.

A lot can make a ballsy interview. It doesn't have to come from who just lost, although it usually will.

Even when it does, it doesn't have to be someone who handled losing well, or someone who went on to have great success.

No, it just has to be someone who did something noteworthy, something that will stand out for a long time.

Maybe they faced the music after choking, made a bold statement, did something that got people talking, etc.
