Rory Mcllroy Wins Championship; US Beat Jamaica to the Semi-Finals

At Sunday’s US Open, 22-year-old Rory Mcllroy carded a two-under-par 69, revealing his undeniable promise and becoming the youngest champion since 1923.

“I couldn’t ask for much more and I’m so happy to be holding this trophy,” he said when he was presented with the trophy. “I couldn’t be happier.”

Last year’s Graeme McDowell said “My hat’s off to Rory this week. It’s been waiting to happen. He’s been this good for a long time, and it’s great to see him fulfill his potential. He’s an awesome player.” He continued, “Nothing this kid does ever surprises me. He’s the best player I’ve ever seen. I didn’t have a chance to play with Tiger when he was in his real pump, and this guy is the best I’ve ever seen, simple as that.”


The US passed the Jamaica team to advance to the CONCACAF Gold Cup semi-finals.

Jermaine Jones scored four minutes into the second half, deflecting off Jamaica’s Jermaine Taylor and leaving goalie Donovan Ricketts helpless against the point. Jamaica was later reduced to ten men after Taylor tripped Jones and was red carded.

This marks the sixth time that the US has reached the semi-finals, and they will next play the winner of the Panama-El Salvador quarter-final match. The tournament winner will represent CONCACF in brazil’s 2013 Confederations Cup.
