Rory must have got him some...

I think Rory can beat him. Tiger is 35 with a severly injured leg. It might take him 2 years to get that leg back to full strength. He will be 36 later this year. He will be 37 you figure by the time he is back at full strength. Rory is the young new generation. It will be tough for Tiger to over take him if Rory can stay mentally tough.

It's not going to take 2 years for his leg to get back to full strength. Plus this is Rory's first major and the conditions for this U.S. Open played more like a Masters than an Open. The greens were as soft as can be which didn't fully punish players from the rough. The rough was way shorter than it was in last year's open and at 2000 when Tiger was the only player under par. However when Tiger gets back to playing like "Tiger" there is no way Rory would stand a chance coming down the back 9 of major. Rory better take full advantage of this opportunity because when Tiger gets back its a whole new ballgame. Rory needs that killer instinct that all the great closers have.

Tiger will be 36 THIS YEAR. And he has a bum knee. So he is on the backside of his 30's with an injured knee. There is no guarantee he ever returs to form. He hasn't won a major since 2008. That's a 3 year drought with a bad knee to boot.

Rory has the best swing on the tour now. And now he knows he can do it so his confidence will be high.

Tiger is still on pace to break Nicklaus' record for major championships and Jack won his last at age 46. When Tiger's swing is on nobody's iron game is even close. Rory has one major which came at a far easier venue than the courses that Tiger won on of Torey Pines, Pebble, and Bethpage Black. Yes Rory is the future but to think he'd beat a healthy Tiger on the final sunday of a major when it's close is ludicrous

What guarantee do we have that Tiger will be healthy?

2009 Majors: Zero wins.
2010 Majors: Zero wins.
2011 Majors: Zero wins.
Present day: Doesn't even play because he can't limp his way around 18 holes.
2012: Will he win?

He already proved this year that he can compete at the highest level when at Augusta he came all the way back into contention on sunday while playing on a hurt leg. Rory however gagged another major away before finally clinching the deal today. As great as Rory's performance was it doens't even sniff Tiger's run in 2000. When Tiger is healthy he'll be competitive that's what legends do

Tiger of 2000 is not the Tiger of 2011. He is 11 years older, divorced, relationship problems haunting his head instead of a singular focus and he has a banged up knee. And he's not getting any younger. I don't think he is that guy anymore.

this to me will be the biggest issue to resolve. he'll heal physically but the mental edge is something that is lacking and is what cost him the masters by missing all those short putts to close

Rory has a much better swing than Tiger. Tiger has serious swing issues, injury issues, and is getting to an age where there aren't too many more majors. Tiger is the best competitor and putter I have ever seen but he will never be the dominant golfer again. Rory and Tiger heads up... I'm taking Rory every time.

ever since Tiger went to this Swing Coach Foley his swing is a s**t. foley makes his swing too robotic and one-dimensional. he's lost that athletic component that he had with harmon/haney
Maybe Rory did learn something from Tiger. He splits up with his gf of 6 years and has a hell of a half year.



According to a report in The Ireland Herald, young and talented Rory McIlroy has broken up with his girlfriend of six years, Holly Sweeney. Evidently the two began dating when Rory was sixteen and Holly was fourteen, while they were both growing up in their hometown of Holywood (think Northern Ireland, not SoCal).

Since McIlroy hit the big time in both fame and bucks he's been pretty good about avoiding the late night carousing scene and has spent most of his free time with his gal pal in their shared home in Ireland. But according to sources close to the burgeoning superstar, things just weren't "working out," between the two. Earlier this year, McIlroy announced he would forgo PGA Tour membership in favor of playing the European Tour, in part, according to some, because he wanted to be close to his special lady friend. In light of recent events, one could speculate that McIlroy might be inclined to change his mind about playing full time in the U.S. in the future.

McIlroy's ex is currently pursuing a career in sports technology at the University of Ulster.
