Rory McIlroy Demonstrates A Champions Skill & Spirit To Win Open Championship 2014

What a display of skill, consistency, determination and resilience from Irishman McIlroy. He held off Sergio Garcia to become one of 3 men in the history of the game to win 3 majors by the time he is 25. He’s in good company with the legendary Jack Nicholas and one of the all time greats Tiger Woods, and looks strong to carry on winning! Not only this, he also became the first European in history to win 3 of the 4 majors. McIlroy was sitting on a 6 shot lead, but as the holes started to run out he was whittled down to just 2…this really was a hard earned (albeit deserved) victory.

McIlroy demonstrated the mindset of a champion, how must the pressure of knowing you’d be placed amongst legends of the game should you come through a win. Despite the pressure he was able to remove himself from the situation, play golf like he knows he can, and proceed to stay out of reach of his competition.
Well done Rory, a British representation on the biggest stage of all!
