Found June 18, 2013 on The Pin Sheet:
PLAYERS: Rory Mcilroy
Here's your June 18th Pin Sheet: Farrell Evans takes a look at the second half of the season:  "There is still time in the season for a player to put his mark on the year. Come December, it will be a very sad state of affairs if the biggest storyline in the game from the season is that Tiger won eight times but didn't win a major. And that Rory McIlroy got super rich with a new Nike deal, but the adjustment to the new equipment might have cost him a year of his career. It's time for the new guard to claim the sport, says Ryan Lavner:  "But another obstacle now is that players such as Scott and Rose – golf’s two newest major winners, this year’s late-blooming but nonetheless breakthrough stars – now view themselves differently when they stride to the first tee. Scott arrived at Merion knowing that he had won a major, that the burden was gone, that he could just swing freely and see how he stacked up. And now, his major victory not even an hour old, Rose already found himself looking ahead, too." Rose and Scott by the numbers. Rose will play this week's Travelers. Merion runner-up will haunt Phil, writes Jason Sobel:  "Still, though, there will always be that emptiness. The next time Woods or anyone else looks Mickelson in the eye, makes a rectangular motion with his two index fingers and says “big picture,” he’ll remember the six U.S. Opens that got away – and the one at Merion that hurt most of all." Phil unhappy with Merion's third hole. Jason Day knows his time is near. British Open odds are out.  Tiger, of course, is the favorite. 9-year old Zach Adams shoots 58 in a junior event. Solheim Cup will donate to Colorado firefighters.

Rory McIlroy Takes Frustrations Out On Wedge During U.S. Open

I could never seriously take up golf. The game would be so frustrating to me that I would break half of my clubs and throw the rest in a tree or water hazard.

So when Rory McIlroy took his frustrations out...
