Rory McIlroy cemented his status as one of golf’s future stars with his record-setting performance at last weekend’s U.S. Open Championship. After playing near flawless golf en route to his first major championship, the 22-year-old Northern Irishman almost immediately drew comparisons to some of golf’s greatest players. Television commentators quickly asked how many more majors McIlroy could win, whether he could be as dominant as Tiger Woods, and even if he could beat Jack Nicklaus’ record for most major championships in a career.
