McIlroy Better Than Tiger Woods?

McIlroy the next Tiger Woods? According to former Masters and Open champion Mark O’Meara the 19 year old is already a better ball striker than the world’s number one was at the same age.

These comments come after McIlroy was leading play at the Dubai Desert Classic after an incredible round of 64 leaving him 8 under par after day one.

With all the hype surrounding the Ryder Cup just starting to build lets hope Rory can continue this fine form and start pushing for a place in the 2010 line up at the Celtic Manor.

    Well, he may be a better ball striker at the age of 19. However, at this age Tiger was in the midst of winning 3 straight US amateurs and was 2 years from winning the Masters by 12 shots. I don’t think Mcllroy will reach that level so soon. It would be nice to see another young guy challenge in the majors though. All the other “young guns” have yet to win any majors.

    Seems every week there’s a new “Next Tiger Woods”. Funny thing is, none of them seem to have panned out yet. TW is a freak of nature. Guys like him only come around once every 50 years, but I guess it’s only natural for people to try and find the guy who’s going to over take the king. I doubt most of us will see another Tiger in our lifetime.

    We have two of the “big boys” of the PGA Tour on the leader board, Jason Gore and Tim Herron. I’m hoping for a Tiger Woods-Jason Gore classic on Sunday.
    Great Blog!
