Rorys major potential


On PGA Tour Primetime tonight Brandel Chamblee and I chatted about Rory McIlroy and his potential. Brandel said he believes Rory will capture four major titles. Do you agree?

He is an incredible young player. At 21 years old he has already accomplished more than many professional players do in a lifetime. Many have compared the young Irishman to Tiger Woods, but Brandel pointed out McIlroy missed five cuts this year, as many as Tiger has missed in his lifetime as a professional on Tour.

Phil Mickelson owns four major titles – more than any other active player other than Tiger - so do you believe McIlroy will be able to match Phil’s record, or will he beat it?

He’s 14 years younger than Woods, so working to his advantage is the fact that he won’t be going head-to-head with Tiger for his entire career.
