His swing 11 yrs ago looked so forceless and smooth. Nowadays his swing looks a bit "heavy".

Chris Hyne says:

@7:36 – Every time Rory hits a bomb and I try and comprehend how far it’s carried

Plumbus Smith says:

@44:04 is that Shane McMahon beside Rory's father?

Brad Watson says:

Walter Hagen was reincarnated as Rory. Can you see the connection? The timeline works. See Seal #7 of http://7seals.blogspot.com .

To hit that many really good golf shots over 4 days is incredible. That is the best golf I have ever seen from any player, ever.

Alex Shadowfax says:

I'm so used to tracers now it's strange watching without knowing where the ball is going right away, were very spoiled nowadays

Will Smith says:

why does every moment after he holes the put on 18 make me tear up?

Awequayz Ngs says:

Where were the greats like Anika strostom ? and Ochawa ? They should be after retirement, be sitting amongst the committee in the body of Golf organisations.

ABC golf says:

The only two people reporters have been so amazed to laugh at shots, Rory and Tiger.

His swing was so fluent. No chasing distance and swing speed

blair Stott says:

Go back to titleist, too many driver changes with Taylormade

American SantaCruz says:

I’ve never been a Rory fan but he destroyed this course. He did win me as a fan during that final round at Augusta 2022. Tee to green was impeccable at this US open.

Strat says:

Commentators are too quiet in the mix.

acousticreate says:

Crazy seeing this compared to now, lazer irons, solid putting, quick confident playing!

Who was better between Tiger in 2000 and Rory in 2011 US Open?
I think Rory was.
