There is no doubt Rory McIlroy was the dominant player on the European Tour and throughout world golf.
Here are the top 10 Highlights.
1. THIS ONE’S FOR YOU, MUM:
Rory McIlroy’s Open Championship victory at Hoylake was the highlight of the European season. He was simply peerless at Royal Liverpool. Even though he grew up in Northern Ireland, McIlroy isn’t really a big fan of links golf. This win proved beyond doubt, if there even was any, that he’s the complete player. Oh, and that he’s also a mummy’s boy.
2. HO HUM, EUROPE WINS ANOTHER RYDER CUP:
Europe winning the Ryder Cup is becoming as routine as when the United States had a stranglehold on Samuel Ryder’s prized chalice. This time there was no miracle needed. The Europeans had this one in the bag thanks to the domination of the foursomes.
3. McGINLEY’S MASTER CLASS:
Quite simply, Paul McGinley is the best captain ever to lead a European side. His attention to detail was outstanding, and he fully deserved all the accolades thrown at him. He’s going to be a tough act to follow.
4. KAYMER’S DEMOLITION JOB:
The German probably doesn’t get the credit he deserves because golf is still a relatively minor sport in his homeland. He’d garner major headlines if he were British or American. He deserved plenty of column inches for the way he took the field apart at the U.S. Open to win his second major.
5. RORY WINS PGA CHAMPIONSHIP:
McIlroy punctuated his season with his second PGA Championship victory. Just when we thought he’d stumble short of the finish line after leading for each of the first three rounds, he goes 5 under for the final 12 holes to prove why he’s the world’s best. Oh, and that 284-yard 3-wood to the 10th hole that set up an eagle wasn’t bad either.
