THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (AP) Rory's McIlroy's year began with a coronation. He was the star attraction at what felt like a rock concert, with music blaring and lasers flashing in a room at Abu Dhabi to celebrate the No. 1 player in golf joining Nike's stable.
It ended Sunday with a bogey on the ninth hole at Sherwood with hardly anyone watching.
An offseason never looked more appealing to him.
