Rory McIlroy is now officially one of Golf’s Global Superstars. But there’s no doubt that he carries a couple of monkeys on his back. One of those definitely being a World No. 1 ranking, of course. There’s but one golfer on the Planet that’s standing between Rory and the distinction of being the absolute best in the sport: Luke Donald.
Keegan Bradley already smashed his way onto “the map” this year. So it was only a reaffirmation of the talented O Golfer’s bright future when he dropped into Bermuda for the PGA Grand Slam of Golf…and took out the rest of the year’s major tournament winners – emerging 4-under for the victory. Taking on the Port Royal Golf Course alongside fellow O Golf Superstar Rory McIlroy, the two shared the lead after the first day. It was Charl Shwartzel who became the most viable threat after some time passed, however. Rory’s second shot at seven veered far left – setting off events that lead to three bogeys to drop to one-under.
The Golf World was dazzled…even shocked…at Keegan Bradley’s bold victory at the PGA Championship. But for Oakley, it was hardly a surprise. The PGA Tour rookie and budding O Team star displayed veteran-like poise in his intense three-hole playoff battle with Jason Dufner in front of a captivated global audience on Sunday – claiming his first major in dramatic fashion. The son of a PGA Pro and the nephew of Pat Bradley – an LPGA World Golf Hall of Fame inductee – the young standout officially hit the map on the heels of a recent win at the HP Byron Nelson Championship. And considering the grand victory on his first try in Georgia, it’s safe to say that golf stardom definitely runs in his blood.
