Nicklaus og fleiri óska McIlroy til hamingju með sigurinn
Hinn 29 ára gamli Rory McIlroy stóð uppi sem sigurvegari á Players meistaramótinu sem fór fram um helgina eins og áður hefur komið fram á Kylfingi.
Fjölmargir kylfingar á PGA mótaröðinni sem og gamlar goðsagnir á borð við Jack Nicklaus gátu samglaðst McIlroy enda hefur hann verið grátlega nálægt sigri í öllum þeim mótum sem hann hefur spilað í undanfarnar vikur og mánuði án árangurs.
Brot af bestu kveðjunum sem McIlroy hlaut á Twitter eftir sigurinn má sjá hér fyrir neðan.
Good way for @McIlroyRory to head into major championshp season & with @TheMasters just weeks away. He was aggressive when he needed to be, disciplined & patient when he needed to be. Really like what I saw!@THEPLAYERSChamp@PGATOUR— Jack Nicklaus (@jacknicklaus) March 17, 2019

Never surprised by @McIlroyRory ability on course ability. After all those so called “poor” weeks ability to stay positive deflect negativity is BIG. Imagine surrounded by positive people and good experts in the game 👍— Richie Ramsay (@RamsayGolf) March 18, 2019
