Ya, it was a boring week of golf all around tbh. Not Rory's fault or anything, watching him was great, he played amazingly well. But wasn't near as fun to watch as the other majors this year.

It was 'boring' from the standpoint of a runaway win without a real serious contender.

 

But two things I enjoyed watching -

 

1. Rory kicking ass. Nothing like a player so in control of his game. When he faced 6-8 foot par putts on the back nine, you know he was thinking 'clean card' and I found myself rooting for him to do it.

 

2. Kiawah Island. Thats is one beautiful course! Those views were just majestic. They have to find a way to get more tour events there rather than a once-a-decade major.

Congratulations to Rory, from an Norn Iron golfer

This is not what you guys are discussing, but, I would like to know this.  Do you think RM's swing is similar to the typical pro swing?  I personally think he is swinging the clubhead, and not using the standard approach.  What do you think?

The problem with statements like that is that they're vague enough that nobody really has a clue what you're talking about, and you're free to shift the definitions of "standard approach" and "swinging the clubhead" around all you want.

 

Rory's swing is as much like the modern golf swing as any on the PGA Tour, IMO.

I agree that Rory's setup is the same as other PGA pros, but, his swing seems much more fluid, and hits the ball a ton for a smallish individual.  There is a match coming up between Tiger and Rory, and exhibition match in Asia coming in October.  This will be a good time to compare the swing's for both players.  We can't know for sure, but I believe the clubhead focus for Cory leads  his     swing, much more so that Tiger's.  Tiger seems to use a lot more energy, swings harder than Cory.  It's just a question, and an observation.
