While Rory McIlroy and his connections are the immediate beneficiaries of the 22-year-old’s outstanding achievement last Sunday, there is no doubt that golf and everyone connected with it is a big winner too.
Rory is a superb ambassador for the sport. Inevitably comparisons are being made. Is Rory the ‘New Tiger’ or ‘Another Arnold’?
No! He’s the ‘First Rory’ and I make no apology for publishing a picture of him for the third time this week!
