Glory, Rory hallelujah
Rory McIlroy remains on course for US Open glory today with a resounding endorsement from Jack Nicklaus ringing in his ears.
The Holywood starlet sets out on his date with destiny in today’s final round with all of Northern Ireland, and beyond, willing him to pull off the remarkable feat of emulating countryman Graeme McDowell and bringing the trophy back here for a second successive year.
McIlroy is 8 shots clear of the field, playing confidently and buoyed by the faith shown in him by 18-time major winner Nicklaus, who insists that he is destined to learn from his mistakes and become a major winner.
