Rory Mcilroy claims British Open title!

Rory Mcilroy claimed his third major championship at the “tender” young age of twenty five, winning the British Open today.  He hoists the coveted Claret Jug and is the third youngest player to do so (behind Tiger and of course, Jack!).  Rory has led throughout the tournament live from the Royal Liverpool Golf Club and has looked unflappable.  Tremendous performance!!  He finished play at -17 with all four rounds under par.  Second place was a tie between Sergio Garcia (runner-up once again) and Rickie Fowler (love Rickie!) at -15.  Then let’s hear for one of the “old guys”, Mr. Jim Furyk, Mr. Consistency who came in at -13.  Finally, two guys at -12, Mark Leishman and current world #1 Adam Scott.  (Tomorrow, Rory will move to #2 in the world golf rankings!)  Finally, Charles Schwartzel and E. Molinari round out the top five at -11.  As for other notables…Phil Mickelson made a nice run today and finished at -5 (began today at -1) while world number 10 and all of twenty years old, Jordan Spieth from Texas finished at -2.  And then there is the Tiger tracker…not a pretty picture sad to say.  Tiger finished up his play live from Liverpool at +6 (ouch!) and shot a final round of 75.  Not a great second outing back for Tiger after recovering from back surgery.  Also, his first golf major appearance of 2014.  All congrats to Rory!!  That being said, I would like to see Tiger get back on track!

In the interest of “fairness”, karma, whatever you want to call it…Rory’s former fiancee, tennis star Caroline Wozniacki celebrated her first title in nine months.  She defeated R. Vinci to win the Istanbul Cup final, 6-1, 6-1.  Good for go Girl!  It is also her first WTA title this year!

Tonight…Unforgettable airs at 9:00 pm EST on CBS.  It is a good one..check it out!  I really hope to get to a theater near me tomorrow…Sex Tape is what I plan to see!

Enjoy the rest of your day and evening!!
