  1. Shady is amazing to watch. As a Pitt Alumni, I knew he was going to be good, but I didn’t think he would be THIS good. I mean the guy basically made everyone forget that BWest even left.
    He cuts are ridiculous.

  2. “We are pleased to name Rory McIlroy as our inaugural Player of the Year,” said David Clarke, Editor of Golf Magazine. “Americans have embraced this young Northern Irishman, taking him into their hearts not just out of admiration for his amazing talent, but also for the grace he has shown in victory and defeat, his generosity of time with fans, and his commitments to causes beyond golf.”
