HOYLAKE, England (AP) Golf has been looking for the next big star the last five years, and Rory McIlroy is the most obvious candidate.
With his name on the claret jug and his Irish eyes now focused on a green jacket, McIlroy took a big step toward the career Grand Slam with four dominant days at Royal Liverpool. He looks unbeatable at times like this. Boy Wonder has it all - skill, strength, shot-making. Throw in a great week with the putter and it's not a fair fight.
But being the next big star is not the same as being the next Tiger Woods.
