Rory McIlroy: Is U.S. Open Just the Begining for Rory McIlroy?
Rory McIlroy's U.S. Open Domination Points to Greater Things Ahead
There have been few performances in golf like the one we have seen at the 2011 U.S. Open. Rory McIlroy is just moments away from becoming the second youngest major champion in the history of golf, and that isn't the most impressive part of his performance.
It is the way he has dominated the course and the field that is dropping people's jaws. The U.S. Open is supposed to be one of the hardest (if not the hardest) tournaments of the year, and Rory McIlroy is a whopping 16-under. That shatters the low water mark for a U.S. Open of 12-under set by Tiger Woods.
Rory McIlroy is not a fluke. This is the fourth straight major he has had at least a share of the lead in, and the one thing he had left to prove going into this tournament was that he could finish off a tournament. Well, check that one off the list.
This is going to be the first of many majors for McIlroy. His game is built for consistent long-term success. During the course of this tournament his swing has been described as "a Michaelangelo sculpture" and "Adonis like."
Those are not comments made about swings that are likely to see a lot of problems. So, when you talk about the future for McIlroy take your pic, and nothing seems to outlandish at this point.
He could win a Tiger Slam, a conventional grand slam, and break Jack Nicklaus' record. It is all within the realm of possibility for this young golfer with limitless potential.
