Rory McIlroy and CJ Cup

McIlroy fantasized about this. Even though he had already won the CJ Cup the previous time, he knew the pressure of defending the title, given that the stakes were high.

His performance did not promise that he could win, but persistence paid off in the end. “If someone had told me on Friday night of the Valero Texas Open, when I missed the cut, that I would be World No.1 by October, I would have asked them what they were smoking because I would not have believed them.

Yeah, it’s just been a wild six months. I figured a few things out with my game and I’ve just been on a really good run”. Rory wasn’t happy with his progress, but he took matters into his own hands and showed class.

“You know, this tournament last year was the start of me trying to build myself back up to this point,McIlroy said. “I had a really rough Ryder Cup, I’ve talked about that at length. I think I was outside the top 10 in the world. It’s not a position that I’m used to being in.”
