42 - US Open

Post no. 42 here:
The US open was held last weekend with a surprise victory to Rory Mcilroy.

Mcilroy surprised everyone to win the biggest tournament of the year and at the age of 22 became the youngest person to win it in 88 years. Mcilroy finished at the end of the tournament 16 under par and won by a margin of 8 strokes.

"Rory is going to have a great career; there is no question about that. He has all the components,'' said Jack Nicklaus, the 18-time major champion who has become a mentor to Mcilroy over the last few years. This 
can only be the start of Mcilroy's career and being so young he has much to look forward too.

With Tiger Woods out of the tournament, it meant the competition would be much fairer and a more contested tournament. This is not what Mcilroy had in mind when he demolished everyone else to kick-start his career. 

Some people are saying Mcilroy will overtake the record of 18 majors, but that is premature but anything is possible. Yet Mcilroy is still only 22. He is fit, he is ambitious and, most importantly of all, he now knows he can win on the game's biggest stage.
