Colin Montgomerie compares Rory McIlroy to Seve Ballesteros
Could one of today's best eventually become one of the all-time greats?
Colin Montgomerie has some high praise for Rory McIlroy.
"He's the most talented player to emerge since Seve Ballesteros," said Montgomerie to BBC. "Seve fell out of his pram playing golf and Rory did the same thing. That's not going to go away."
A quick Google search of "pram" reveals that it is a stroller. In which case, Montgomerie is right.
Padraig Harrington took the praise a step further, noting that he thinks McIlroy could eventually hold the record Tiger Woods is chasing.
"I've said it is possible Rory could compete with Jack's record. Time is on his side. He started winning majors at 22, so that gives him a good bit of time.
"Rory has won two in the last three years. That's a good stat. If he wins more in the next three years, then that really becomes some stat."
We're getting ahead of ourselves a little bit but I, like both Monty and Harrington, think Rory is going to have a bounce-back year in 2014.
Montgomerie also went on to say what he thinks is wrong with Tiger Woods on the weekends at majors.
"The trouble with Tiger is that he just has not been aggressive enough over the weekends," said Montgomerie.
