A Young Rory McIlroy Chips Golf Balls Into His Mums Washing Machine

2011 US Open Champion Rory McIlroy has had his sights on being a professional golfer and champion ever since he was a wee little lad in Northern Ireland. We have all seen the footage of Tiger Woods on the Michael Douglas Show but now we have footage of Rory before he became a household name in the golfing community and beyond.

This spot was taken shortly after he won an under 10 tournament circa 1999 at Doral Country Club which is located in my old stomping grounds of Miami Florida. Rory's attitude hasn't changed since the time this interview was conducted. His hair is a lot longer, and he has grown taller, but his enthusiasm for the game has always been there.

In my last post, I talked about how "he gets it". He understands how to be appreciative of everything he has. This is seen even at this tender age as he gives his Dad his medal for skipping an important dinner in order to see his son play. If you were not a Rory fan before, you certainly will be after watching this piece. How could you not? Have a great round and always hit your target.
