Rory’s win in the Player’s Championship was not only good for his confidence going into next month’s Masters but also pretty good for his bank balance netting a decent purse of 2.25 Million Dollars.
The win saw the Northern Irishman’s earning soar to over 45.5 million dollars at an average of just under 300,000 per event!!!
With no worse a finish in 2019 than tied for 6th Rory’s confidence is sky high going into the Augusta event in the hope of becoming only the 6th golfer of all time to win all 4 majors.
With media critics suggesting a change of caddy was needed and ‘oh he can’t close out the tournaments Rory shut them up to some extent with a closing round of 70 scorching through the back 9 in just 33 strokes.
A 4 round total of -16 saw Rory edge past the 48 year old Jim Furyk by one shot.
