No flair needed as @McIlroyRory seals @The_Open victory. Jim McCabe story:

HOYLAKE, England – Perhaps he didn’t close it out with the emphatic flair of Tiger Woods, with whom he will be so often compared to in coming weeks. But being Rory McIlroy is quite sufficient, especially when armed with a six-stroke lead on the final day. The fact that McIlroy made it stand up at Royal Liverpool – wobbly, perhaps, but successfully – earned him a Claret Jug and a spot among some distinguished company in golf annals. Having seen his seemingly insurmountable lead whittled to two by Sergio Garcia, McIlroy sealed his victory in the 143rd Open Championship not with thunderous drives that had put him in commanding position, but with deft precision in short-game prowess at the final two holes.
