Happy (belated) birthday to Rory McIlroy, who turned 25 on Sunday, and celebrated with a solid 70 and a T-8 finish at Quail Hollow during the Wells Fargo Championship. Considering how quick an impact the two-time major champion had after turning pro in 2007, it feels like McIlroy should be an older bloke, no? Thankfully over the years the Northern Irishman's style has matured as much as his game. He has a sharp look in his Nike threads these days and has come a long way from the days of the overgrown black locks.
