Rory McIlroy wins the BMW Championship
By mustang6560 on 9/10/12
Rory McIlroy won the BMW Championship Sunday to become the first player since Tiger Woods in 2009 to win back to back on the PGA Tour.
"The more you put yourself in this position, and the more you win and the more you pick up trophies, it becomes normal," McIlroy said after his two-shot win over Phil Mickelson and Lee Westwood. "And it feels like this is what you're supposed to do."

For the longest time, this was what Woods used to do.

"I don't think I'm quite there yet," McIlroy said. "But I'm getting to that stage where I'm thinking, 'This is what I should be doing. I should be lifting a trophy at the end of the week.' It's been great. The last four, five weeks have been incredible, some of the best golf that I've ever played. I'm going to try and keep the run going for as long as possible."
If you rewind to late spring or early summer, Rory was struggling on the golf course. In fact, following a missed cut at The Players, the Memorial, and the U.S. Open, the golf media was ready to write off Rory. But, that was then. It's amazing what a PGA Championship and two consecutive playoff victories will do for your stock.

Even though it doesn't feel "normal" yet to be on the leaderboard week in and week out for Rory, it feels normal to me. But, don't worry Rory, it'll come. One day it'll feel as natural as sticking a 4-iron from 200+ yards inside five feet.
