Rory Mcilroy - the Biography by Frank Worrall


Rory Mcilroy - the Biography by Frank Worrall

Hard-hitting Rory McIlroy was always destined to become a professional golfer from the moment he recorded a 40-yard drive aged just two. His first hole in one came when he was nine and he played in his first professional European tout event as a 16-year-old in 2005. His amazing amateur career saw him conquer Ireland and Europe before topping the World Amateur Rankings in 2007. But he really came to prominence with his superb opening three-under-par 68 in the 2007 Open Championship at Carnoustie. He went on to accept the Silver Medal as leading amateur. Despite high expectations, Rory keeps a cool head on his young shoulders and lets his golf do the talking. In 2008 he entered the elite of the top 100 in the Official World Golf Rankings and his maiden victory came in 2009 Dubai Desert Classic where he endured a nail-biting final hole. His final breakthrough came when in June 2011 he won his first major, the US Open at Congressional County Club in Maryland, USA. Rory finished in an amazing total of sixteen under par to seal his place among the golfing greats. This is the fascinating story of one of golf's most exciting young talents.
