Like many others, I predicted Rory McIlroy to win his first British Open at Royal St. George's.
Unfortunately, it was clear from the beginning that the game McIlroy possessed at the U.S. Open was not the same one he brought with him to England.
His game was good, and his opening rounds of 71 and 69 allowed him to stay near the leaders. Unfortunately, his game worsened as the tournament continued. As a result, he never was a contender on the weekend.
McIlroy's game was not all bad though. Parts of his game was good, parts decent, and other parts were far from perfect.
Without further ado, here is a breakdown of McIlroy's game as we saw it at the British Open.
