RECORD BREAKING RORY STORMS TO U.S. TITLE

Record-Breaking Rory Storms To US Open Title
13 Comments8:35am UK, Monday June 20, 2011

Rory McIlroy has stormed to victory at the US Open by eight shots, becoming the championship's youngest winner since 1923.

The 22-year-old from Northern Ireland, eight strokes in front of the chasing pack overnight, carded a two-under-par 69 at the Congressional Country Club to claim his first major title.

"I couldn't ask for much more and I'm so happy to be holding this trophy," McIlroy said at the trophy presentation. I couldn't be happier."

Long-regarded as a future world number one, McIlroy posted a tournament record total of 16-under 268 to leave his nearest challengers trailing in his wake.

And his victory has banished memories of his final-round Masters meltdown two months ago.

After safely parring the last where he two-putted from just off the front of the green, he pumped his fist in celebration of the Open win as he broke into a smile.

His Mum and Dad have taken on two jobs to help him reach his goal and years ago his Dad put on a £100 bet @ 500 to 1 that his Son would win the Open before he was 25yrs old, so he is on a Winner as well. Rory gets over £1 million for winning this Tournament.

What a great acheivement for one so young, he is very down to earth and I hope he stays that way, although it will be difficult.
