Rory McIlroy earned a Sports Illustrated cover for his victory in the British Open.
I imagine this headline on the cover caught the attention of the PGA of America: “Masters Preview 2015: Why wait?”
Michael Bamberger’s story already is pumping up the anticipation of McIlroy trying to complete the career Grand Slam at Augusta National next April. Still, I’m sure next month’s PGA Championship in Louisville will feel a bit overlooked. At last check, it still is considered a major.
