Rory McIlroy delighted all golf fans after a hole-in-one at Travelers. This is the first time that a Northern Irishman has managed to achieve a hole-in-one in a PGA tournament. After everything that happened, golf fans wondered if Rory kept the ball.
However, Rory surprised everyone and said that he is not someone who is sentimental. “I'm not sentimental,” -Rory said, as quoted by golfmonthly.com “I don't care. I'd rather have trophies than golf balls”.
When you hit a hole-in-one it gives you wings to keep going. It was Rory who made sure of that. This could be an indication that Rory will do great things in the coming period. It remains to be seen. “As holes-in-one go, I've had them in the past where it has been like an okay shot and you get a little lucky,” said McIlroy.
“That was the best shot of the day that I hit. Obviously a bonus for it to go in the hole, but it was really cool. I played pretty averagely up until that point. Felt like that hole in one got me going a little bit. Birdied the next couple holes after that and sort of got me into the tournament a bit”.
Rory McIlroy talks about his game
Despite the fact that he had great moves, McIlroy also reflected on those 'less popular' moments. “Hole-in-one and great shots, and I also made five bogeys, which was the sloppy bit of the day.
I feel like I didn't - I don't even know if I made five bogeys during the whole U.S. Open last week. I just need to - I think I did, but I just need to tidy that up. Making five birdies and an eagle out there would be good enough to be in the Top 5. I just need to cut out the mistakes”.
