Today is Rory McIlroy’s 30th birthday, and to mark the date, the PGA Tour has put together a video showing off the Northern Irishman’s top-30 shots of his Hall of Fame career.
A couple of table-setting notes: These shots are exclusively from his PGA Tour career, and do not include majors or the European Tour.
In terms of numbers, the Wells Fargo Championship appears most frequently (6), while the seasons of 2018 and 2016 lead the way in the aggregate with six each. The years of 2011 and 2013 came up totally empty.
One weird thing we found was the PGA Tour referring to shots at the WGC-Bridgestone (replete with logo/signage) as the WGC-FedEx St Jude’s Invitational. They did similarly with shots Rory made at Doral (WGC-Cadillac), calling it the WGC-Mexico.
Yes, we get the whole sponsorship title thing, but history is history. Fans who were attending the 2015 WGC-Cadillac Championship at Doral did not attend the 2015 WGC-Mexico Championship. Stop the nonsense.
