Everyone believe Rory McIlroy will run away with the British Open like he did at the US Open.
The problem is that now he has the weight of expectations placed upon his shoulders. With expectations comes much more pressure-with pressure comes tension in the arms which leads to bad swings.
When you have expectations placed upon you, the world will change for you. To help get rid of expectations is to enjoy the journey and stop thinking about outcome. Expect to have fun and you will do much better-If Rory works on enjoying the journey now, he will succeed time and time agin.
