I agree with you. He has a tendency to speak in haste.
He has a long way to go. I think the media 'pumping him up'
too much is giving him the impression that he can do that.
When you are in the spotlight, you have to measure your words.
They will come back to bite you.
The other 'young guns' are very humble and gracious.
My least favorite pro would be Ray Floyd.
Many years ago I had the chance to play in the Champion's Tour Proam in San Antonio Texas. Our pro was Ray Floyd. During our round, he commented to one of my partners that he should just pick-up before his tee shots to save us all time. He came across as very self-centered and arrogant. At the end of the round, I mentioned that I remembered his 1976 Masters tournament domination. It was very impressive; but my favorite Masters was 1997 because Tiger's score removed Ray Floyd form the records.
Everyone deals with pressure in different ways. This is why GOLF is so difficult to play. It is a very personal test of your SKILL, PATIENCE, FOCUS, ETIQUETTE etcetera. No one is immune, however that being said, when you are interviewed your responses are scrutinized and this is where maturity must raise it's head. If it doesn't the media makes you PAY! I think Rory will have to pay a few times like everyone else. Hopefully he will learn and move on. He is not a favorite of mine only because he seems to be on the verge of imploding when he is facing the real pressure deamons.
Hey Rory, can you handle THIS?
