Rory Loses To Hamilton

The entire golf world was shocked as the young golf icon Rory McIlroy lost out to Formula 1 legend Lewis Hamilton at the BBC Sports Personality of 2014 award last Sunday.

Rory’s Northern Irish fans, golf seniors and connoisseurs of the game were hoping hard for the Irish hero to win the coveted trophy since he was declared as the finalist for the prestigious award with Lewis Hamilton.

The F1 racing hero won his 2nd F1 title in November at UAE whilst Rory was the 1st golfer from UK to triumph at back-to-back golf majors as he claimed PGA US title this year.

The dapper Irish golf hero came up with spectacular performances this year with victory at two majors (WGC Bridgestone & BMW PGA) & helped Europe to retain the coveted Ryder Cup.

He is the reigning #1 golfer at present so it’s fair to say that it’s pretty natural that the golf veterans will be miffed with the 25-year-old golf star’s loss to Lewis Hamilton at the prestigious BBC award circuit.

“BBCSPOTY has become a huge joke”, read a tweet from seriously offended Poulter. “It is a such a huge shame. Big congrats to Hamilton but then he had one single guy to beat throughout the year.”

Rory tweeted later- “Thanks to everybody who supported me through voting. Congratuloations to every candidate & specifically Lewis Hamilton- he is a thoroughly deserved & worthy winner.”

In tune with Poulter, Rory’s fans too expressed great disappointment regarding the SPOTY decision, over Twitter.

“Rory’s year was any day better in comparison to Hamilton”, tweeted Mark Allen.

“I love F1 & Lewis but then I love golf as well & I feel Rory must have been awarded this time. Once again the award went to higher-profile sports”, noted Beck Bailey.

Swipe at Unexpected Criticism From Nick Faldo By Sergio Garcia

Faldo, the Europe’s highest ever Ryder Cup point scorer and a former captain has been talking against Garcia. He has described Garcia to be of no use during the loss in 2008. He had also laid accusations against him saying that he did not carry a very good attitude.

To all these comments Garcia thought everyone had been joking. He thought that he was hearing everything wrong and it was very disheartening to hear all of it. He said that the reason Faldo had been saying things might be because he did not value or feel European enough. He thought that was the only reason possible. He has not said anything further on the grounds that he did not want to bend down to the level that Faldo went and so things remain unsaid.

However, with all the fir team mate Greame Mcdowell has been more than happy o get involved and play his part. He has been keen on giving his point of view and making a comment. He has taking instances from the 2008 game where the pairing was Garcia and Westwood. They were the best Ryder Cup pairings but still they had lost the game. On this basis he feels that the comment made by Faldo that he was useless is fairly correct as he did not play well.

There have been a lot of support as well that has come for Garcia after the statements have been made. Fellow mate McIlroy stood by his side and told that he was not useless. He also replied back sarcastically that he too loved Faldo. Garcia and McIlroy did not look very good in the morning. They lost to Phil Mickelson and Keegan Bradley. Europe was on charge soon with Garcia and McIlroy when they made the last three holes. They secured their half.
