Rory's Quail Hollow Performance

I watched it back on DVR the other night. I'm not sure I've ever seen a golfer dominate a golf course like Rory did on that back nine. According to the Golf Channel, Quail Hollow's last three finishing holes are among the most difficult statistically on the PGA Tour. Rory just destroyed them and he made it look effortless.

 

I've learned not to get too excited by so-called "break-out performances" by young players but I like what I've seen from him and Fowler this year.

I agree. It is nice to see one of the young guys step up and make it fun to watch again. Being of Irish descent, it gives me pleasure to watch him play here. I'm hoping he now plays here more but I'm guessing he will stay with the European Tour full time for now. Only time will tell.

Makes me sad that I have no television. I really wish I'd been able to see Rory this weekend, I'm a budding fan of his.

That Eagle on the back side, that shot from the fairway bunker to right next to the hole. His attitude, his smile, it's hard not to like this guy. Plus, the biggest bonus there ever can be, HE"S IRISH!!!
