How far? – VERY….. :-)

Brilliant ….

mcilroy3.jpgto see young Rory McIlroy earning his European Tour Professional card in only his second event. Rory became the youngest player to earn his card from tournament play when he finished 3rd at the Dunhill Links Championship.

The final leaderboard looked like this:-

Nick Dougherty did well to hold off all the various challengers but Rory’s performance, so soon in his professional career, sets everyone wondering just how good this guy really is! Anyone who follows golf at all knew he had real talent but we could only hope that the step up to the professional ranks would be relatively easy. So far so good! A brilliant performance.

We all hope it won’t be too long before the teenager holds a major trophy in his hands….. 🙂 But can he do it? Time will tell.

In the meantime – well done Rory!

    The dream goes on… 3rd tournament, Madrid Open, 4th place.

    He’s quoted on the BBC as saying:

    “I would have taken fourth when I came here. I think I’ve done very well after all that has gone on over the last few weeks and I hope to follow it on next week,” he said.

    “I am playing very well at the moment, I am hitting it really well. If I could get a couple more putts to drop it would make the difference.”

    At this rate he’ll surpass all records! Go on lad…. knock it into a foot and sink every putt!
