Watching Hero.. Is Rory graying??

Where did you get the time machine?  Can you tell us some results so we can get bets down?

Oops sorry... Not Hero.. whatever this silly money game is over in Japan. Had watched a Hero ad so had that running around my head.

I just spent five minutes trying to find the Hero on TV because of you lol. I want those five minutes back 😂

 

PS- to keep this on topic: Rory McIlroy... not overrated 😄

Yeah, that is a re-run too, you know. Before the Zozo that Tiger won for #82.

Lol. Yeah, watching this while carving turkey with 15 people at the house. So forgive the lack of context altogether.

But, seriously, what has he done lately?

Oh how beautiful a playoff with Rory and Reed would be...it would be the best thing this tournament has ever had happen. And of course...I’d like to watch Rory bury that cheating putz.

So glad to see Rory back in the winners circle! Definitely not overated. Certainly hasn't been as consistent as some of the best players of all time. But when he is on, he is one of the best there is!

Are the 512 replies to this topic about Rory being overrated or has this become a Rory Catch all topic? If the latter, the topic title should maybe reflect it.

Good to see him win again. His first since 2019. 2020 wasn’t his best year and an up-and-down 2021 so far with missing the cut one week and being top 10 the next. 

But that has been Rory all along and maybe what spurred this topic: his inconsistent performance. One week he’s hitting it as well as anyone has and the next he’s out of it and struggling. His talent is undeniable, but inconsistency is keeping him down.

Why does Rory struggle with consistency?

Why does ????????  struggle with consistency?

Insert any name you like.

Why doesn't the most talented player in the world win every week? Because it's golf.

Consistency is the most over used and misunderstood word in golf. It’s like sinus infection in medicine.

My very first golf lesson the instructor asked me what skill we were going to work on, I said "I want to be more consistent".   He laughed.   I hit a few weak pushes and he said well, you have that down pat, let's work on fixing your swing path.

That pretty much nails it - inconsistency.   He even admitted that the recent quest for distance ruined his swing to where he can't draw the ball like he used to.   He reminds me of Dale Earnhardt Jr in his NASCAR career - the kid could drive "at times" but most of the time he was all over the place, never in the groove.  Did not stop him from being the circuit's most popular driver.  Rory is the same to the PGA - he comes across as very likeable and the guy you would love to play a round of golf with.
