  • RORY MCILROY
Age: 24.
Country: Northern Ireland.
World ranking: 2.
Worldwide wins: 10.
Majors: US Open (2011), PGA Championship (2013).
Best US Open performance: Win.
US Open memory: Hugging his father, Gerry, on the 18th green at Congressional after winning his first major with a record score in the U.S. Open.
Backspin: McIlroy had no idea he was about to go on a big run last summer that took him to No. 1 in the world. He had no idea he was about to go into a slump at the start of last year. His game can change without notice. The fact he spent time with Dave Stockton (putting coach) instead of Michael Bannon (swing coach) at the Memorial could be an indication that he’s close.
