Born in Holywood, Northern Ireland on May 4th 1989 to an avid golfing family he has gone from a child prodigy like Tiger Woods to an international golfing professional playing the four corners of the globe, so far in his illustrious career he has picked up 13 PGA Tour victories and 9 international victories, the list so far is.

Recently due to the worldwide ‘lockdown’ because of the coronavirus pandemic, we as golf fans have been starved of not only playing golf but of also watching it, but that is just about to change because we are in for a televised treat, so we are to interrupt your backyard chipping contest to announce a live golf broadcast featuring in-the-flesh professional golfers.
Instead, you can watch Rory McIlroy and Dustin Johnson face Rickie Fowler and Matthew Wolff in the TaylorMade Driving Relief Match.
The match will be played May 17 at historic Seminole Golf Club in Juno Beach, Florida.
The PGA TOUR’s scheduled return in mid-June has been a beacon of hope, but five weeks can feel like an eternity when you’re uncertain what tomorrow brings. Now we’ll get to see four of the game’s best play a course that many of us have only dreamt about.
This is the first televised event at Seminole Golf Club in Juno Beach, Florida . Ben Hogan used to spend weeks at Seminole each year. He once called Seminole “the only course I could be perfectly happy playing every single day.”
“If you can play well at Seminole, you can play well anywhere,” he added.
Seeing how four power players handle the intricacies of this classic design adds another layer of intrigue to next week’s event.
“When you first get there and you look at it you think, ‘OK, I should tear this place up,'” Johnson said about the host venue. “And then when you get done playing, you add your score up and it’s never very good.”
Watching something live and unscripted is a welcome return to normalcy, whatever that may mean in these times. Some may call it naivete but at least it’s a step in the right direction.
No, a win won’t add another line to the gilded resumes of the four competitors. We’re still weeks away from “official” competition. This event will have a higher purpose, though. Charity donations of $4 million have already been pledged, with more on the way. Viewers can donate to COVID-19 during the telecast.
After changing golf manufacturers a couple of times over the last couple of years, mainly to do with money being offered by Nike who now have pulled out of the club making sector of the sport so he has now settled with TaylorMade after the last 6 months getting used to the change, I am sure that the next few years we will see Rory contend for more majors and no doubt rack up a few more PGA Tour and International victories along the way.
How many more majors do you think Rory will win?
