Sports fans have long dreamed of a golfer winning the Grand Slam, but they have been frustrated for 85 grueling years.
Is 2015 the year the Grand Slam drought will finally end?
Charlie Rymer, of Golf Channel, reports Rory McIlroy has been reading up on Bobby Jones, the man who won the Grand Slam in 1930. It has not been done since, and no one has even come close.
That we are even talking about the possibility shows the Rory Era will be unlike anything we’ve seen before. (Although Golden Bear fans recall Grand Slam talk surrounded Jack Nicklaus every spring during much of his career.)
