Rory McIlroy Wins The Open Championship

Rory McIlroy Wins The Open Championship

Stuary Franklin/Getty Images(MERSEYSIDE, England) –  Rory McIlroy held on to win the 2014 Open Championship on Sunday to capture the third leg of the career Grand Slam.
McIlroy, 25, led by six shots heading into the final round.  The lead was down to two shots at one point, but he wound up closing with a 1-under 71 for a two-stroke victory over Sergio Garcia and Rickie Fowler.
“It feels incredible,” McIlroy said. “Today wasn’t easy. A few guys were making runs at me. I just needed to stay focused and stay in the present and really concentrate on what I was doing out there.”
After winning the 2011 U.S. Open and the 2012 PGA Championship, McIlroy joined Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods as the only players with three different majors at age 25 or younger.
Woods shot a final-round 75 to tie for 69th, capping off his worst 72-hole finish in a major as a pro.
“I just had to get more game time,” Woods said.  “I think we did the smart thing by not playing too much leading into this event, just want to assess how my back was. And where I need to strengthen, how I need to go about it, how to gain my explosiveness again, and all that’s come along.”

Rory McIlroy Leads Day One of the British Open

Rory McIlroy Leads Day One of the British Open

iStockphoto/Thinkstock(HOYLAKE, England) — Rory McIlory has taken the British Open by storm after shooting a 6-under 66 on Thursday.
“It was pretty stress-free to be honest,” McIlroy said after his round. “I got myself out of position a couple of times on the course but that was really it. And obviously no bogies when I did get myself out of position. I was able to get it up and down nicely. Just a really solid round of golf.”
Matteo Manassero made only one bogey and also shot 33 after the turn, resulting in second-place finish after one round at 5-under 67.
After a tough start to the day, Tiger Woods rebounded nicely to shoot a 3-under 69, which is tied for 10th.
Defending champions Phil Mickelson had a tough day on the course, shooting a 74 and closing with a bogey.

Tiger Ready for British Open

Tiger Ready for British Open

Scott Halleran/Getty Images(HOYLAKE, England) — Tiger Woods is not concerned about his back problems anymore and is poised to compete for another major title this week at the British Open.
“I’ve been in circumstances like this,” Woods said on Tuesday. “If you remember in ’08 I had knee surgery right after the Masters. I won a U.S. Open. I didn’t play more than nine holes and the Sunday before the U.S. Open I didn’t break 50 for nine holes and still was able to win it in a playoff, with an (torn) ACL and a broken leg.”
“I’ve proven I can do it, it’s just a matter of putting my game and giving myself the best chances this week to miss the ball in the correct spots, to be aggressive when I can, and obviously to hole putts. That’s a recipe you find for every major championship, but I’ve just got to do it this week,” Woods continued.
Woods last played in June at Congressional Country Club and missed the cut at the Quicken Loans National after shooting a 74 and 75.
The 14-time major champion said that his back and swing are almost 100 percent.
“It’s getting better,” Woods said. “Playing at Congressional was a big boost to me. The fact that I was able to go at it that hard and hit it like that with no pain. It wasn’t like that the previous time I played. Playing at both the Honda and Doral [in March] I did not feel well. But to come back and be able to hit the ball as hard as I was able to hit it. I’ve gotten stronger since then, I’ve gotten more explosive, I’ve gotten faster since then. That’s going to be the case, I’m only going to get stronger and faster, which is great.”
Woods tees off on Thursday morning at 9:04 a.m. local time (4:04 ET).

Tiger Shoots 3-Over in Return to Golf

Tiger Shoots 3-Over in Return to Golf

Rob Carr/Getty Images(BETHESDA, Md.) — For the first time in three months, Tiger Woods was back on the golf course. Woods shot a 3-over 74 in the opening round of the Quicken Loans National at Congressional Country Club on Thursday.
“I was trying to get the numbers and the feel,” said Woods. “That didn’t start happening until midway through my front nine.”
Woods had seven bogeys through his first 12 holes but closed with three birdies in his final six. It was the competitive round for the 14-time champion since having surgery on his back in March. Woods’ last PGA Tour event was the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship at Doral. He finished in 25th place with a 5-over performance.
The first round 74 is the highest score for Woods at the tournament. Only once has he gone on to win an event after shooting so high, the 2005 Masters when he opened with a 74. Greg Chalmers leads the field after a first round 66, one-shot better than Ricky Barnes and Freddie Jacobson.

Tiger Woods Will Miss U.S. Open

Stuart Franklin/Getty Images(DUBLIN, Ohio) — Tiger Woods announced on his website Wednesday that he will miss the 2014 U.S. Open at Pinehurst No. 2 because he is still recovering from back surgery.
“Unfortunately, I won’t be there because I am not physically able to play competitive golf,” Woods said. “I’d like to convey my regrets to the USGA leadership, the volunteers and the fans that I won’t be at Pinehurst. The U.S. Open is very important to me, and I know it’s going to be a great week. Despite missing the first two majors, and several other important tournaments, I remain very optimistic about this year and my future.” Woods has been sidelined since playing in the WGC- Cadillac Championship in early March. The 14-time major title winner had surgery on March 31 for a pinched nerve in his back.
This will be the sixth major championship Tiger has missed because of injuries.
