Although Rory McIlroy was considered as the rightful heir to the throne after Tiger Woods, the way he had missed cuts in his career of five years which is far more than what tiger missed in his long 17 ears of career has put that expectation in question.
What is more shocking is that Rory is not bothered about it even if he missed ten cuts in a row, to him winning a major each year is more important. There was a hint of boast in his tone when he said, “Just imagine Tiger ever admitting that.” and yes, Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods are two different individuals.
Justifying about having high tides and low tides in his career, Rory McIlroy talked about Phil Mickelson and mentioned that his highs and lows in his scores made him a man of flesh and blood and the phrase ‘to err is human’ worked well for him. According to him, a golfer could not have all the days for himself in every tournament and it is human. However, he detested the way Ronnie O’Sullivan plays golf.
Six months ago Rory McIlroy won the PGA title by eight strokes. He almost earned the name Mr. Infallible. The name quickly changed to Mr. Unfathomable after he did a deal swap from Father Christmas to Nike for multi-million dollars. But this could not have demeaned Rory McIlroy because he has always been full of hope. He said that this stuff was not new to him and he had always come back with a bang. Recently, he is in tough days. Wisdom tooth pain pulled him out of the Honda Classic in 2013; he got knocked out at the first round in the Word matchplay. But we all know that every cloud has a silver lining.
