Rory Mcilory Dethrones His Idol “tiger Woods”

Rory McIlory, the current world number one golfer confessed his admiration for Tiger Woods; he said that Woods was his role model since childhood and now they are rivals and will face each other on the Master at Augusta this Tuesday. In this tournament, Tiger Woods will come back after being away from PGA Tour.

McIlory on the interview done by Marca Deportiva said that he still remember tiger Woods’ first Major, in 1997; year when he became one of the biggest sportsman of the generation inspiring many children. In fact, T Woods was who inspired him to be a better golfer.

Taking advantage of this situation, Nike released a spot in which Rory Macllory’s admiration and idolization of T Woods is shown, through scenes of Rory�s childhood trying to imitate every single shot of his idol. An excellent opportunity to kill two birds with a stone don�t you think? Using Rory�s and the ex-number one golfer image to promote the brand as it has been done with most sportive idols.

Comparisons are easily done, but the best reference that we can take to reach a conclusion may be to focus on what both players had reached at a similar age. In 2000, when was 25, Tiger Woods had one of the epic seasons in the entire golf’s history, winning three majors on a total of 24 strokes and after that he won the Masters of Tiger Slam. On the other hand, when Rory was 25 years old (on 2014) he won two Majors winning by eight strokes each previous pair what put him a Masters away from the Grand Slam. According to GolfDigest

Also, getting more personal, we could compare their attitude and goals. While Tiger Woods was completely focused on winning and reaching fame, keeping distance from everyone around him including Jack Nicklaus (Woods’ inspiration) for example, Rory McIlory was focused on better himself as a golfer, communicating with Jack Nicklaus constantly and being closed to people is definitely not an issue for him.

The statistical comparison according to golfdigest. of both players when they were 25 years goes in the following way: Driving Distance: Woods 298.0 and McIlory 310.5; Fairways Hit: Woods 71.2% and McIlory 59.9%, Total Driving: Woods 1 and McIlory 15; Greens in Regulation: Woods 75.2% and McIlory 69.4%; Sand Saves: 57.3% Woods and 47.5%; Scoring Average: Woods 67.79 and Rory 68.83 with a Birdie average of 4.92 from Woods and 4.58 from McIlory.

Now, after having compared a little these two amazing gofers Rory McIlory and Tiger Woods, It is time for you to consider who would you likely bet on, If you will go with the experienced golf start or if you will rather chose Rory Mcllory who has shown a lot of potential as well, give it some thought, if you need and start putting some action in your favorite sportsbook!
