GOLF GOING YOUNGER BY THE DAY

Pro golfers have been going younger by the day.


This year it entered new frontiers as 23-year old XanderSchauffele won the Tour Championship, making it the most youthful year of the PGA Tour.

Rory McIlroy is only 28 years but he is close to the other end of the age spectrum. He is seeking his first victory in 2017 as he hosts the British Masters. He is above the average age of the top 10 in the playoff standings already as the game goes younger by the day.

Rory McIlroy Is Positive For Defending His Title

This season, Rory McIlroy is winless, but he is hopeful return to a known and comfortable stomping ground at the Dell Technologies Championship this week, which is taking place in Boston.

It will offer him a springboard to another title of FedExCup playoffs.

MCILROY BLAMES GOLF BALL FOR AUGUSTA SLIP

Golf World No. 2 Rory McIlroy has pushed the blame on his golf ball this time after he failed to complete the career grand slam yet again.


The golf star was tipped to do the career grand slam at Augusta but he ended up six shots from the eventual winner Sergio Garcia.

His display at the event leaves much to be desired as he finished in seventh place. His best result at the tournament remains the top four finish in 2015. The expectations have been much and he has not been able to handle it very well.

“I need to change my golf ball. That’s a big thing. I thought my golf ball this week was doing weird things in the wind. It was very inconsistent so there’s one thing I will change and try to work on the next few weeks,” he said.

Rory added that he feels his swinging is still good and his putting. He feels something is wrong with the equipment to he would work around them. [Continue reading…]

Weather Forecast In Favor Of Rory McIlroy

Unlike in other games, in golf, weather plays a crucial role.


It is the key predictors to judge who will play and win in a tournament. And, if one checks the forecast of the tournament, then name that jumps to mind. And that is Rory McIlroy.

Augusta National will have greens, rolling fast and smooth. And when the rain will come, it will make the course smoother. So, after the rain, the course will become favorable for those players who are big hitters. And, the big hitters in the event are Rory and Dustin Johnson. If such scenario will occur, then players will have to make a sharper hit to make the ball reach to the hole. Both the players are not only capable of carrying the ball past others off the tee, but also they have the potential to hit shorter clubs into greens. [Continue reading…]

Rory Mcilroy’s Withdrawal From Turkey

Let’s backtrack a little. The Turkish Airlines Open was scheduled to go as planned as late as Oct 27.


However, officials of the European Tour were all set to cancel it last week due to unprecedented scenario. The terrorist activity we saw earlier this year has played its part. Naturally, players are scared. So, it’s really a big deal to know that a tournament is going on. It’s nothing short of a miracle.

The decisions were made last minute. It was indeed a dramatic behind the scene scenario. The CEO of the European Tour made a last minute trip to Turkey and met with the Foreign Affairs minister and the British Consulate before announcing that the tournament will be on as planned. They gained the confidence literally on the last day.

As far as the safety of the players was concerned, they arranged 2 charter flights that kept the players safe. The Ataturk Airport in Turkey was the site of the terrorist attack in June, which killed 36 people. The players were safely moved to a private terminal in Antalya via another plane.
