Winning on Sunday was probably the worst thing Rory could have done, because now the hype machine is in overdrive.

True, but he really should be used to it by now. Shouldn't he?

Filing for divorce...just the preparation required in the lead up to a major!

A bit of a surprise, but I assume it's been coming (albeit kept surprisingly quiet) for some time, so it's not like McIlroy should be in shock. I'm sure he's thought about what media are going to be asking him as well.

Still, does seem a bit odd from a timing perspective, but then maybe he thinks there isn't really a good time.

I don’t see how he should be “in shock” seeing as he’s the one filing for divorce. Maybe the relief is the reason for his improved form last week. I just feel sorry for the kid - four year old caught up in a parental split is not good.

Also worth bearing in mind at the time McIlroy split with Wozniaki he won The Open and PGA.

That was my point. a) he's the one filing and b) presumably, it's been coming for some time (albeit the wider world were unaware), so I imagine he'd processed the decision pretty well by now.

Agree re. their daughter, but then that appears to be the norm these days, doesn't it? I'm not sure that any vows anyone makes are worth the paper they used to be written on and it's far too easy to get out of a marriage IMO.

Scottie Shefflers eagle 2 at the first hole yesterday immediately took him into the top 20 on the round.

Pretty amazing from Schauffele yesterday; can he keep it going? As a bonus to the event, I bet he, and anyone else, is really reassured that should they win it, it'll be a fully validated Major as the awesome Talor Gooch is in the field...

Had to laugh when I saw the saintly Scottie Scheffler in an orange jumpsuit, the american cops are so OTT.

If you have talent, belief and persistence and you keep knocking on the door....eventually it will open. Well done Xander, the pressure did come on and he weathered it. Needing a bird on the last and getting it especially from that lie (stance) for the 2nd shot. Great stuff!!

Good for Schauffele. Probably one of the better players to have not won a major, until yesterday!

Glad Bryson didn't triumph.

Excellent work from Schauffele to bounce back from last week and generally poor Sundays to win yesterday - especially when Bryson and Hovland put together such good rounds and pressure on him!

Much deserving of a major I think - who is the new best player to have never won a major in the current game?

Will be interesting to see if “getting the monkey of his back” results in a higher conversion rate over next few years. Hard to say either way because there are so so many capable each time the tour rocks up to a major.

As to who now inherits the best never to win one now homes in on Hovland? Tommy? Stateside it would I suppose be Homa? Cant lay? Of all of those Tommy has been around the longest.

Edit: a quick google and yeah, Tommy is now the stand-out. Top 5’d in each of the 4 runner up in both Open & US open & 3rd in Masters, total of 8 top 10s since 2017. That was Xanders 13th top 10 in a major
