While Tiger Woods has already declared he is unfit for this year’s British Open, the world of golf seems to have left him behind. After upstart Roy McIlory scored his first major victory at the US Open earlier this year, the refrain around PGA clubhouses in 2011 could easily be ‘Tiger who.’
HotelTravel.com Chief Marketing Officer, Tom Racette, said: “Roy McIlory is the face of professional golf for 2011, along with his young posse of friends who dress up flash in bright colors and white belts. They are the ones making all the noise this year, and that trend will continue at the British Open. With Tiger out injured the best he can do is try to steal boy Roy’s thunder with cheap theatrics on the Golf Channel.”
