How can he be like Lee Westwood when Westwood doesn't have a major? When Rory is mentally engaged he can't be beat. He plays American high ball flight golf and that works for three out of four majors. He has lived up to expectations so far, which cannot be said for most. Thus not overrated.

Impossible to predict what Rory will do but you have to base the opinion on what he has already shown us. He seems to win whenever he desires a particular event or title. Plays poor when he is only there because it's expected and he would rather be seeingthe girlfriend etc. As long as he retains his desire he will win many more tourneys including majors. He would at least want a green jacket and no doubt will be going all out for that. He does,nt do well at the British Open because he doesn't really like the style of the courses so much, or the weather ! He hascome acrossas a bit of a sulky spoilt brat in the past on occasions but that will reduce as he matures. I see lots more big victorys, golf is his life and probably always will be, it's what he knows.
Why they need to compare him to Tiger Wood's is just media hype not much more, these are the facts though, only 43 golfers have won 3 or more majors since ...mmm.. let me see...1861 and Rory has 2 already at age 23 when he wins his 3rd and he will he'll add his name to this group, say no more, Moe knows!
This was mine in this thread:
For once, I agreed with what Brandle Chamblee said tonight after the tournament: Europe hasn't found another Seve, it's found it's own Rory.
I also for once agreed with Johnny Miller in that in remains to be seen if Rory has that desire to be a legend. I mean, he stormed away with this one but I want to see what happens when he's either tied or trailing by 2 shots. He's not going to win majors by 8 strokes again. We've seen him crumble before when things got tight - has he truly learned from his past experiences? Time will tell. Great kid, I'm pulling for him big time.
This bit made me laugh hahaha.
