Agreed!  As long as he's second to Spieth at the PGA Championship.  😃

I’m happy for Rory to be back in the circle, especially winning on such a tough track. Too many folks were blaming being married, and having a kid for his recent issues. Glad to see him win.

I was hoping Mitchell could’ve held it together to finish second so he could play at Kiawah....

My buddy worked the tournament as a scorer and grabbed me two Quail Hollow hats! He hooks me up every two years or so.

Great to see Rory doing well. His couple of bunker shots on the back 9 were outstanding.

I just love how transparent he is/was through all the coaching during his drought and how much he puts it on his own shoulders and that of his team.... easy to blame a course/clubs/conditions but seeing him putting in the work shows and talk about it shows why he deserves to be a fan favorite. Golf is ****ing hard haha.

I was at Quail Hollow on Sunday and bounced back and fourth between Rory and Woodland. After the birdie on 7 Rory seemed to turn it on and get in the "zone" like the early 2010's and it was a sight to see.
