MANILA, Philippines – With two Major golf tournaments under his belt, Rory McIlroy is happily sitting in the No. 1 spot.

The 23-year-old Irishman climbed to the top of the world rankings after following up his runaway eight-shot victory at the 2011 US Open by winning last week’s US PGA Championship by the same emphatic margin.

While Tiger Woods failed to add to his career haul of 14 Major titles, McIlroy underlined his status as the game’s most exciting young talent.

Looking further ahead, McIlroy said he feels less pressure and more confidence when Europe will attempt to hold on to the Ryder Cup.

McIlory also talked about how he shared his love for sports with girlfriend and Danish tennis player Caroline Wozniacki. -- ANC, August 21, 2012.
