OT (slightly) Ulster Rugby supporter wins USA Open Golf

Rory McIlroy is a season ticket holder at Ravenhill and gets to any Ulster
games he can. He's a great supporter of the team and I believe he plays golf
with some of the squad..

Glad to see he put the horrors of the US Masters behind him to win (bit of
an understatement really) the US Open Golf Championship.

Many professional athletes could take a leaf out of his book in the way he
approached his horrible collapse at the Masters. He acknowledged his Masters
shortcomings to the worlds' press at the close of play (rather than bury his
head) and re-applied himself and worked on his game.

The transformation was remarkable.......

What's more, he seems to be a really grounded young man who knows what it
takes to cut it at the highest level.

This is only the beginning.........

Hopefully Ulster Rugby will acknowledge his wonderful achievement when he
next attends a home game at Ravenhill. I, for one, will happily give him a
cheer!

  I was there, followed him the last round. Phenomenal performance,
that is a monster of a golf course, although the greens never really
got to US Open speeds due to rain overnight every night. He seemed
completely relaxed, almost oblivious to what he was achieving, despite
the constant roaring of the crowd  the whole way round. Very
impressive kid.

I'm working in France this week, and had to leave straight after it
finished having had no sleep. I was going to go to bed early but just
couldn't stop watching.

Does anyone else here think they can spot an Irishman before they've
said anything? All the photos of McIlroy today, he just looks so
typically Irish. I'm not saying it's a bad thing, just that I think if
you laid a load of random pictures out and asked me to pick the
Irishman, I could.

"INBREEDING" - who said that?

I used to work in Kings Lynn and Thursday Market used to bring in the
fen dwellers.  They all had strong family resemblance; the same family.

I've spent a fair bit of time boating around the wash, and know
exactly what you mean. Cromer, Wells Next To Sea and Hunstanton are
not much better. Picturesque though (the scenery, not the yokels).
