The critics have exhausted the reservoir of superlatives to describe the performance of Rory Mcllory. Even the words “exemplary”, “extraordinary”, “stupendous” are not enough to paint Rory’s success into words. And it will take pages to tell about the achievement of this young golfer. But believe me; this golf player has amazing qualities and immense potential to fill the void made by the untimely departure of Tiger Woods.

Rory Mcllory

Rory has overshadowed the other participants in the US Open victory. Some are even comparing him with great Tiger Woods. But it is not high time to describe Rory as the next roaring Tiger. Woods has an enviable record of success in his kitty. Rory has a long way to go and only future can tell if he can be the next Tiger.

But comparison seems to be inevitable as Rory has come off victorious with record score. His performance recalls the way Woods dominated the golf court in 2006 US Open. The golf legend won by 15 shots at the picturesque Pebble Beach to earn his third major victory. Rory has posted an impressive performance on the same court with his record-breaking halfway tally of 131. The score is a reflection of what Rory can do with his club and on the green turf.

Rory is all set to dominate the game with his skill and charismatic appeal. An unexpected overpowering of attention, affection and adulation was observed in the gallery when the American golf lovers were chanting the name of Rory. Unbelievable it sounds, doesn’t it?

Time can only divulge whether Tiger has enough power to cast an enviable shadow of dominance over golf as he has used to do over a decade. Tiger is suffering from the knee and Achilles injuries. No doubt, he has been passing through a chain of several and severe problems. But now, it seems to be the onset of a new era.

Fredrick Jacobson

Fredrick Jacobson, a veteran Swedish golf player has claimed the first victory on the other side of the Atlantic. Jacobson is the proud eighth first-time winner and 25th different winner on PGA tour this year. Two weeks ago, Harrison Frazer made the breaking news and now it is the turn of Jacobson. These two golfers have 544 career starts between themselves.

Jacobson considers it a great deal. With this win, he has moved up to 18th in the FedFxCup standings. He is definitely overwhelmed with his performance and improved ranking. This win is more important for Jacobson as he promised his five year old daughter to bring the trophy home.

At the end of the last year, a show on all the golf winners of 2010 was aired on the TV. Jacobson’s daughter, Emmie, was also watching the show. As her father did not appear on the screen, she asked Jacobson, “Daddy, why don’t you have any trophy at home?”Jacobson could not impress her by saying that he had already won some prestigious titles. Most probably, the girl wanted more.

Since then the question has been haunting Jacobson. Finally he has proved himself true to his words. He has got one for his little angel. He has two other children. So, may be they will be more demanding now and Jacobson has to bring each of them a new trophy.
