What an amazing feat for an Irishman that only lives 4 hours away from Royal Portrush Golf Club, in Northern Island.
What a major championship win for him as he battled frightful weather that was almost unplayable, to end up 6 shots better than second place Tommy Fleetwood.
We watched a little of the tournament yesterday, and then again as soon as we got back from the gym today. We were willing him on, and it looked as if he felt so comfortable, on home ground.
Now he has the Claret Jug for the coming year, and a whopping $1.935,000 check. He also has guaranteed places in upcoming golf tournaments for several years to come.
Today was a life changer for him. Congratulations.
