What I love about the anti-McIlroy stuff is that people talk about him like he's a failure.

Yet. he's got nearly enough wins to be a hall-of-famer twice over

You need 15 wins on major tours, plus 2 majors

He has 28 wins, plus 4 majors, and he's only 32

I'll bet there's a shed load of players on the world tours, who wished they had the stones to win tournaments that Rory has!

And probably being dissed by double digit handicappers who struggle to break handicap round a club course, and who have no idea of the increased degree of difficulty that a course set up for a professional tournament holds. You couldnt make it up. :rolleyes:

90% of tour players would love a career like the poor season Rory has just had.

I thought that one of the many differences between the tour pros and us hackers was that they could put a bad shot, or bad hole, out of their mind and get on with playing their normal stuff. That is what was so surprising to me after hitting the pin on the 15th, Rory just fell apart and played three successive holes really poorly. Thats the sort of thing I do!
