Has Norn Iron's alpha dog lost his bark/bite. Wee Rors looked like a whipped pup after Big Phil well and truly schooled him at Pebble Beach. With his tongue hanging out, a hound-dog expression on those lean chops of his and tail firmly stuck between his legs, RM slunk off back home to his glitzy new kennel in search of some TLC from his significant other. It's a dog's life when you miss the cut.
Come on Rory. !! It’s Ryder cup year. We need you on form !!!
@46 : Obviously McIlroy isn't a quitter and you don't aspire to the adage ' a winner never quits and a quitter never wins ' Maybe you are one of life's quitters ?
@51 Idiotic comment !
Time to retire Rory, your time is up............
"After an opening 68 at Spyglass, McIlroy fell down the leaderboard with a three-over 74 , including a five-putt double bogey..."LASIK needed at before Spyglass...
As It gives me great pleasure to see him at his best I don't hate but I resent him as he's rarely that since he chose to be a part-timer which does't suit his fragile ego. At Crans, going for his 1st win at the last, wedge in hand, has to hit the green and 2putt to win. He blew it. Some guys can turn it on like a tap, others need to play and win, play and win, play and win till it becomes a habit.
Not a single comment about the actual event, just a load of comments abusing Rory. Says it all really, but of a joke event, week on the beer in Carmel, 6 hour rounds, bill Murray wearing “funny” trousers ...
Totally agree that rory should not be the headline here, but the level of animosity being shown to rory on here is ridiculous. As are the comments about his putting, he was putting really nicely in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. Having said that, if the headline was about Potter Junior, and people would have thought the article was about a new film.
If he can't putt, he should withdraw from the majors just now. That would save him from the usual lengthy excuses we have come to expect. He won't beat Nick Faldo' s total of 6 .
Practice makes perfect, Rory's putting has descended into mediocrity and unless he takes the time to improve his technique he's going to be hanging around the cut marks for the foreseeable future. He had a caddy who could advise him until he went for a yes man who's simply a glorified bag carrier. Its probably time to reconsider what was a stupid move and reinstate his caddy. Ask Phil Mickelson !!
With his long play he should murder most of the Country Club Courses golf is played on now...trouble is he can't putt.
@41 peterfutcher : I guess you must have used up a lot of brainpower to come up with that dumb comment !
Instead of having a ' cool time ' Rory, I suggest you get the putting sorted or say goodbye to winning the Masters.
Mcllroy your finished please retire.
