Rory McIlroy is one of the biggest names in golf by far. At 32 years old, he’s amassed 18 wins on the PGA tour, including four major championship victories, per Golf.com. He’s made history as one of three players to win four majors by the age of 25, alongside Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods (via FiveThirtyEight).
That said, McIlroy found himself having kind of a tough year. While golf was able to make a glorious comeback after COVID-19 interruptions, McIlroy’s game was less so. He admitted to finding the quiet greens a little more challenging than he’d anticipated. “I thought I’d like the peace and quiet when we returned, but I missed the crowds,” he told the New York Post. “I feed off the energy so much. I’m excited going forward now that we get to play in front of crowds like that. It was just an awesome experience to feel that again over the weekend.”
