US Open Golf 2011: Is Westwood-McIlroy the Next Big Golf Rivalry?
Two Men From United Kingdom Could Forge New Rivalry After Strong Weekend Together
Although Rory McIlroy is sure to win the U.S. Open, let's not forget the performance of England's Lee Westwood. He's been on par today, holding a score of -5 for the tournament. He also made quite a push yesterday after a horrendous Day 2, so the fact that he's even in the Top 10 is incredible.
Given how Westwood is English and McIlroy is from Northern Ireland, these two would be an interesting pairing come the British Open.
I'm not a big golf-watcher but if Rory McIlroy and Lee Westwood were paired together for the British Open, I'd watch every minute. Putting these two at the same tee-time would be the ultimate national rivalry, especially on their home turf. Just imagine if they were in the top two spots for the entire tournament. How intense would that be?
All we can do now is keep our fingers crossed and hope that it actually happens. If it does, ratings for the event are sure to be sky-high.
