He’s the world’s best golfer for a reason. Rory McIlroy is playing on another level than his competitors. The Ulsterman has four major victories and a total of 18 professional wins. He set the tournament record at the 2011 U.S. Open with 16-under and won the 2012 PGA Championship by a record margin of eight strokes. He is still seeking the green jacket in order to complete his career grand slam, but it’s only a matter of time before he does so. Already with $27,352,632 career earnings on TOUR, McIlroy is best golfer of this generation.
