You’ve read Part 1 and Part 2 of this series, and lastly, we have Part Rory.

Rory McIlroy overcame a four-shot deficit at the start of the final round to beat Adam Scott on the 72nd hole at Royal Sydney and win the Australian Open, his first victory in 2013. We spent the day with McIlroy last week in Las Vegas at TPC Summerlin, where Rory talked about getting dialed in with the latest equipment from Nike Golf, along with his increased performance since putting the new clubs and ball in his bag.

Here now, check out Rory talking about playing with the new RZN Black ball:

As I promised in Part 1, I’d share my personal experiences with testing the new Nike products on the uncharacteristically cold and breezy day at TPC Summerlin in Vegas.

I was one of the few crazy people who decided to play a few holes in the tough conditions because I wanted to provide the best review possible for you, the readers (it’s all about *you guys*, after all!), which I’m paying for now with a fever and cold. No big deal, though! — it’s part of the job!

That's what euphoria looks like after eight years of patience

After Kevin Na rolled in a seven-footer for par on 18 at the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, he raised his arms in the air and hollered for joy (as shown in the photo above). During his 18th-green-victory interview, he fought back tears, saying he had “nightmares about finishing second” in the past, but after eight years of trying, he’s finally won a PGA Tour event.

I’ll be honest — I felt some chills up my spine and goosebumps from seeing the raw emotions of a teen prodigy who turned pro at 17 and probably thought he’d experience this moment a lot sooner. I don’t have time to find the words to describe it, but simply, Na’s reaction is one of the reasons we watch and love competition and sports.
