Shocking statement come from Rory McIlroy, the world’s number one golfer. He said that he doesn’t love golf as he did when he was a child. We can only say that his accomplishments aren’t responsible for that! If this 25 year old golfer adds the Maters to his US Open, PGA Championship and Open titles, he will complete a career grand slam. Despite this, Rory announced that his love for golf isn’t the same as at the beginning of his career.
When he was a child, he spent every day playing golf and couldn’t imagine a day away from a golf course. Now, he can’t wait for a week off! He added that golf isn’t a job, he doesn’t have a day of work in his life, but it is stressful and intense environment, and having a week off that is simple, desirable.
Rory’s first success was in at the 2011 US Open, when he was only 22 years old. Since then, he won the US PGA in 2012 and 2014 and Open at Royal Liverpool, last year. He said that he will never live up to the success of Tiger Woods a 14 time major winner, who took a voluntary absence. Many people say that McIlroy will be a new face of golf, and he will replace Tiger Woods, but McIlroy doesn’t think like that. During his childhood and his career, he never thought about this. He believes that it is impossible for him to be better than Tiger Woods. What a modest man! Despite all that glory, McIlroy still has his feet on the ground, which is very rare.
