No You're Not Dreaming, Rory McIlroy Is Leading a Golf Tournament!
By mustang6560 on 10/31/13
For the first time in almost a year (Dubai last November), Rory McIlory is in the outright lead of a golf tournament.
The former world number one carded an almost blemish-free 7-under-par 65 in the first round of the HSBC Champions to hold a two-stroke lead over Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano and Jamie Donaldson. Instead of inserting a quote from his post-round interview, we decided to embed the entire thing as this is a cause for celebration!
In addition to settling his life off the course (he created his own management group and reportedly dumped Caroline Wozniacki), Rory is using a new Nike driver and a new golf ball and the combination seems to be working.
Here's to Rory's recent strong play including today's 65 not being a fluke! We need someone to challenge Tiger Woods next season...

hard to get excited on day one of a tourney.......
Wow, he's leading one day in a row. Ahead of Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano and Jamie Donaldson too.

LOL @larry and f5d.
Oops. Day 2 not so great and 5 shots behind. So will the headline now read, "Yes, You Were Dreaming...Go Back to Bed...McIlroy Down By 5".
But don't worry, we have two more days of riding this roller coaster and Dustin is not known for his ability to close the deal.
Man, the hsbcgolf.com site sucks.
