Gerry McIlroy received yesterday the best Father’s Day gift he could have ever hoped as Rory McIlroy became the youngest U.S. Open Champion since Bobby Jones in 1923.
“Happy Father’s Day dad, this one’s for you. But I have to mention my mum as well, who’s back home watching. I can’t thank them enough” were the first words from the newly crowned 22 year old champion.
It was great to see that Rory McIlroy was able to overcome his mishap at the Masters and was in a perfect physical and mental shape.
