Jason Sobel talks about Rory McIlroy's rise

 

The GolfChannel.com Senior Writer tells Daybreak, that Rory McIlroy is a refreshing alternative to the Tiger era.

Jason Sobel: "When about 60 media members were out watching Tiger's parking spot the other day, Rory McIlroy at one point walked right past them with the (British Open Trophy) in his hand and no one even really turned around and looked at him. He kind of just walked past and it wasn't a big deal... That said, Rory's been getting plenty of attention but he's been dealing with it wonderfully. This kid is grounded. He's been open, honest, engaging, funny, humbling, he's just sort of everything you want in a superstar. And in a lot of respects, no knock on Tiger, but (Rory's) sort of the anti-Tiger when it comes to speaking his mind and being open."
