Caddie reveals 'ruthless' McIlroy likes to destroy rivals
London, Aug 15(ANI): World number one golfer Rory McIlroy's caddie, J.P. Fitzgerald, has branded the Ulsterman as a 'destroyer', who likes to annihilate rivals during competitions.
Fitzgerald's claims appeared to be backed by the convincing manner in which McIlroy has won his two majors. It was nothing less than annihilation.
McIlroy repeated the eight-shot drubbing he handed the opposition at the U.S. Open last year, but this year, at the USPGA, it was even better.
Rain-softened Congressional was tailor-made for McIlroy's power and high ball flight last year, but this time he had to answer the doubts over whether he could handle high winds and unforgiving greens.
"I called it at The Open. I said the way this guy is hitting the ball, he is going to destroy fields. He was playing that well in practice, I knew if it wasn't going to be that week it would happen soon," The Sun quoted Fitzgerald, as saying.
"Yes, you could say he destroyed everyone at Congressional but the conditions here were very different. You wouldn't have thought they would suit him," he added.
"You can see he has this ability now to hit shots like the four-iron he held up against the wind on Friday. That is the result of hard work," he said.
Fitzgerald also said that McIlroy refused to let his intensity drop.
"We got to seven clear standing on the 18th and Rory said to me: 'We won our last Major by eight - let's do it again'. Then he made that 20-footer for birdie at the last. Incredible," Fitzgerald said. (ANI)
