can someone get this fella Rory's autograph

you havent a effin clue

if you talk to anyone involved competitive amateur golf from 10 years ago esp from outside the north, they will tell you about the charming Gerry McIlroy and his equally affable bankroller / son.

acts like marking an opponents ball with L before a round to signify he was a loser
and plenty of classy acts like it.

running charitable foundations to avoid tax does plenty of good but it wont buy class

You play a bitta GAA? The opponents telling you to look at the scoreboard when they are stuffing you would fall into that bracket
Anything I post is not the view of the County Board!! Nobody died in the making of this post ;-)

Cant understand howour wee Rors is still compared to Tiger. Nowhere near his ability or drive. To be fair both are dicks, but Tiger is a more talented dick.

Is anybody comparing them anymore? I don't think there is really any question about the fact Tiger is way better. Having said that he has 14 years on him so Rory has a bit of time to win more but I don' think we'll say anything like Tiger again.

but "hate" which is a much over used inaccurate term is generally towards people they dont know/ never met / watch on TV.

dont know how someone can hate a golfer for playing slow.... can see how they wouldnt rate somebody if they are a cnut towards a fellow golfer

hate is not a term I would use, and conjures up acts such as stalking and name calling. Dislike is more acceptable. So in a head to head, with Spieth I'd prefer the other guy to win, lol.

I think people forget just how good Woods was, 14 majors yes but 79 tournament wins and a stat I only came across a couple of years ago. He went 7 years without missing a cut, ridiculous..........

Rory is a superb golfer but tiger was phenomenal. If memory serves me right he used to be as short as 3/1 to win golf tournaments. And this with a field of 160 players. Mental

I'd like to hear more about this. You don't generally have any reason to touch your opponents golf ball - much less take a Sharpie out and write something on it.

He was much lower than that, I backed him in the Masters, 2005 or 2006 & he was 6/4. Which I think was a record - he didnít win !

Yeah. I also remember one year at the start of The Open, the rest of the field was 9/4.  Tiger won it!

Iím going to guess that once upon a time, a teenage McIlroy picked up one of his opponentís practice balls when they were chatting and joking on the practice green, and wrote ďloserĒ on it. Which is normal behaviour for a teenage boy.

But hi this is the Internet, and stories without context are more clickable and shareable.

more like first round teebox of an amateur championship tournament when both discovered they were playing the same type ball........... but fair enough its normal teenage boy behaviour and the halo shouldnt slip........
