Rory McIlroy doesn't have a total majors number in mind
Rory McIlroy might not be focused on the number of majors he's going to win but everybody else is.
This information embodies the silliness that ensues once somebody is successful at a young age.
You might have heard Rory McIlroy became the third-youngest golfer ever to win three of the four majors last week at Hoylake and now this.
Be prepared for insanity — bookmakers setting Rory’s chance of breaking Jack’s major record at 6-to-1! SIX TO ONE!— Shane Bacon (@shanebacon) July 23, 2014
Six to one, eh? I know a red-shirted fella who was probably 1-6 to break Jack's record who's going to fall woefully short.
Even more so, the Ulsterman:
Just did some math (seriously!) —Rory has won 13 percent of the majors he’s started. Keeps that up until he’s 45, he will end with 13 majors— Shane Bacon (@shanebacon) July 23, 2014
Well that certainly doesn't seem to add up.
I am confused. This is me:
McIlroy, for his part, doesn't seem too concerned about the record, as he told Irish Golf Desk.
"No. I never thought about it. It's never been a goal, it's never been a target of mine," McIlroy said. "I've alway said, when I won my first major, I was just trying to focus on my second. And when I won my second, I just wanted to win my third.
"Now that I've won my third, I just want to win my fourth. That's the way I want to keep it. Putting a number on it just gives you more pressure, more expectation. I don't think it's fair on myself. If I can just keep adding to the number regularly...I don't have a set number I want to get to."
Strangely, the only rational, sensible person in the room is the 25-year-old kid with all the money.
