I can’t think of a better way to spend my first Father’s Day as dad than by watching the final round of the U.S. Open live from Congressional. And what a day it should be. With Rory McIlroy holding a commanding 8 stroke lead heading into Sunday, today will hopefully mark the coronation of one of golf’s finest young players.
I hope El Tigre is sitting back, watching this U.S. Open from his massive estate in Jupiter, FL, just biding his time until he’s healthy once again and ready to take on Rory. Because that’s ultimately golf’s biggest story should McIlroy pull through today and win his first career major. Can Tiger return to his old form and challenge the young gun for title of world’s best? I look forward to a least 5 solid years of McIlroy/Woods battling down the home stretch of the majors.
It is going to be tough to pick a favorite between these two once in a generation talents. But, until Tiger is healthy, smart money remains on the precocious talent from Northern Ireland.
