Rory McIlroy didn’t merely win three strong tournaments in a row, he won the three strongest events of the 2014 golf season. They were:
- British Open (902 OWGR points)
- PGA Championship (890 OWGR points)
- WGC-Bridgestone (804 OWGR points)
The U.S. Open was next at 789 OWGR points.
By the way, I’ve been monitoring the general sports media, and ESPN is all over Rory today. He has gotten far more coverage than Johnny Football, so you know there’s been some serious coverage going on. And there has been a noticeable decline in number of the Tiger Woods “placement ads” we’ve grown so accustomed to. ESPN actually showed a chart of the multiple major winners since 2008. Woods was, of course, nowhere to be found on it.
