Many Professional Golfers Thank Their Fathers for Shaping Their Lives

by ParentCo. June 22, 2016

The United States Open, which concludes on Father’s Day, is a convenient time for players to recall how they are shaped by their fathers and their own children. Rory McIlroy, who inherited his love for the game from his father, Gerry, secured his first major title on Father’s Day at the 2011 United States Open at Congressional Country Club. His favorite memory from that day, he said, was walking up to the 18th green and spotting his father along the rope line beside the hole. When their eyes met, they communicated all that needed to be said about love and sacrifice and pride.
