Rory McIlroy Was Even Good At 3-Years-Old
By mustang6560 on 5/8/12
I wonder if Rory McIlroy's parents truly knew that their son would one day grow up to be a great golfer. It's too early in his career to try and quantify just how great, but Rory is barely 23-years-old and he already has six professional victories including one major title (the 2010 U.S. Open).
After watching this video of Rory's swing 20 years ago, it got me wondering if parents can tell if a future in professional sports is in the cards for their kid(s). Even at the ripe old age of three, Rors showed signs of brilliance, which in his case turned out to be true. I wonder if Rory's dad filmed this video knowing it would be valuable one day, or if he just filmed it because home videos are a great way to embarrass your kids in the future.

His 3 year old swing is better than mine at 33. Depressing.
Wow. The follow through is still the same. Impressive.

Rory is the only golfer since Tiger in the current era that reeks of inate talent, imo. I've seen the kid in person. He's all of 5'10", 160lbs and hits the ball insanely far for his size, hits it straight, is an awesome feel player from bunker/short game. Putting is good. Born to play golf.
i agree 110% with Duke... you couldnt say it better. the guys was born to play golf with a talent that cannot be achieved by just practicing !
