Rory Mcllroy breaks Tiger Woods’ record on OWGR world rankings

Recently, Rory Mcllroy has set a new record for position on the world rankings. The four-time Major champion has become the youngest player to have 500 weeks in the Top 10.

This will be a memorable milestone in the career of the Northern Ireland golf star. Because at the present time, very few golfers can surpass the statistics on Tiger Woods‘s achievements. Especially after Super Tiger leveled Sam Snead’s 82-year PGA Tour title at the ZOZO Championship.

However, McIlroy was rather modest and wrote on Instagram, “The first and maybe the last time I beat Tiger.”

McIlroy is well known in the pinnacle of golf for speed conquering the most. After becoming a professional golfer, not long after that, Mcllroy reached the final T3 at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship 2007 and rose 572 places to 308 in the world. This achievement also earned him enough prize money to become the youngest golfer with the fastest European Tour card.

In 2009, McIlroy reached the Top 10 of OWGR for the first time thanks to finishing third in the Dubai World Championship in the European Tour. Three years later, Mcllroy rose to number one with the Honda Classic trophy and became the youngest golfer to hold the top of the world men’s golf rankings.

Could a November Masters help Rory McIlroy finally win a green jacket?

The last time McIlroy was outside the top 10 in the world was when he was eliminated at the Valspar Championship and fell to 13th place.

In the near future, Mcllroy will probably reunite with Tiger Woods in the largest sports arena on the planet: Olympic Tokyo 2020. And if Mcllroy has confirmed to play under the Northern Ireland team, the ability is Woods can participate in the Olympics or not until the end of June 21. Because Super Tiger is the fifth American golfer on the Olympic rankings.
