Rory McIlroy was born to play—at the age of 2, he hit a 40-yard drive. More than just power, however, Rory has one of the most complete games on tour. Just 19 years of age when he won his first professional event, the Dubai Desert Classic, Rory shot to 16th in the World Golf Rankings. He finished the 2009 season with a T-3 at the PGA Championship and ranked second in the Race to Dubai. In 2010, Rory won his first PGA Tour event, the Quail Hallow Championship, with a course record 62. Later that season, he tied the St Andrews course record with an opening day score of 63 at the Open Championship. He finished the Open T-3 which he followed up with another T-3 finish at the PGA Championship. 2011 saw Rory endure a difficult Masters, where he faltered after going into the final day four strokes up. This setback only proved his resolve, however, as he won the US Open two months later by eight strokes. The victory set the US Open record for the lowest 72-hole aggregate score. To finish his fine 2011 season, Rory secured five further top-3’s including wins at the Lake Malaren Shanghai Masters and the UBS Hong Kong Open. Rory would also go on to again finish second in the Race to Dubai. Rory had a storybook 2012 season, taking the number 1 spot in the World Golf Rankings, with wins at the Honda Classic, the PGA Championship, which he won by a record eight strokes, the Deutsche Bank Championship, and the BMW Championship. Rory also played a key role in Europe’s dramatic 2012 Ryder Cup win. By the end of the 2012 season, Rory was the most accomplished player in golf, winning the PGA Player of the Year, the PGA Tour Player of the Year, the Race to Dubai European Tour Player of the Year, the Vardon Trophy, the Byron Nelson Award, and topping the PGA Tour money list.
