Rory has had quite the turnaround from his enormous let down at Augusta. In fact, he put on a similar clinic at Congressional, only this time he kept it together for all four rounds to win the U.S. Open in record-breaking fashion. In this video from 1999, a 9-year-old Rory chips into a washing machine, does the old Tiger Woods ball trick, and says that his favorite golfer is Darren Clarke. Twelve years later, Clarke sent Rory a message prior to the final round saying, "Show them how good you are." And when he did, Clarke withdrew from this week's European Tour event in Munich to be around for Rory's homecoming party.
