Shocker! Rory McIlroy Was Talented as a 9-Year-Old

There is a lot to love about this video of Rory McIlroy as a 9-year-old.

-- That he was decked out in Tiger Woods gear, all the way to those hideous, HIDEOUS first shoes Nike came out with back in the late '90s.

-- That he said Darren Clarke was his favorite golfer. TAKE THAT, GRAEME MCDOWELL! (Note: I think at this point in his career, McDowell was stocking groceries in between pints of Guinness).

-- That he was noticeably upset when he didn't hole that first one.

-- The smile after he finally made one. Kid looked happier than on 18 at Congressional.

Also, side note, McIlroy was 9-years-old in 1999?!?!? Man, just thinking about that made my back hurt. And reminded me I need to take my vitamins. Thanks a lot, Rory.
