Rory McIlroy's terrible, horrible, no-good, very bad week
By Torleif Sorenson on 5/22/15
Rory McIlroy was rather frustrated after shooting an opening round 71 (-1) in the BMW PGA Championship (f.k.a. "The British PGA"). He suffered three bogeys. Interestingly, after a his-hit fairway metal at the 17th (above), he still saved par. The 71 left him six shots adrift of Italian Francesco Molinari.
Rory's game came completely apart.
This is especially puzzling in light of how he has played over the last three weeks. As of today, Rory has gone:
Win, T-8, win... cut.
Next week, Rors will be at Royal County Down in Northern Ireland not just to play the 2015 Irish Open, but also to serve as tournament host; this is the first year that the Irish Open will be in support of his foundation. After two additional weeks off, he and the rest of golf's elite men will journey to Tacoma for the 115th U.S. Open Championship at Chambers Bay.
Will Rory be seeing red on the scoreboards, or in his golf game?

As brilliant as Rory can be, he does tend to have lots of ups & downs with his game. That was the amazing thing about Tiger in his prime; he was always on.
