The fascinating story of one of golf's most amazing young talents, winner of the 2011 U.S. Open Hard-hitting Rory McIlroy was destined to become a professional golfer from the moment he recorded a 40-yard drive at the age of two. His first hole in one came when he was nine, and he played in his first pro European tour event as a 16-year old in 2005. This biography tells all about his amateur career, culminating in the Silver Medal as leading amateur in the 2007 Open Championship at Carnoustie. It presents a portrait of an athlete who, despite high expectations, keeps a cool head on his young shoulders and lets his golf do the talking. It goes on to describe how in 2008, Rory entered the top 100 in the Official World Golf Rankings, with his first victory coming in the 2009 Dubai Desert Classic where he endured a nail-biting final hole. His final breakthrough is discussed, when in June 2011, he won his first major, the US Open at Congressional Country Club in Maryland. Rory won by eight shots and finished with the amazing total of 16 under par.
