Rory McIlroy announced this week that he will play the Farmers Insurance Open next week, beginning January 24th at Torrey Pines in San Diego. It’s a big move for Rory as he shifts his focus to a mostly American golfing schedule as he let known during the winter.

It’s a big win for Golf, in general, to get Rory on the national stage early in the calendar year at an American event. The idea is, of course, the always tricky scheduling to get one’s mind and body and game ready for the Majors.

For Rory, it’s about winning the majors.  He’s won four. He’s got 14 total PGA Tour titles.

Not that there’s really any debate, but why is Rory important? Well, he’s arguably the best golfer in the world or at least in the discussion and at 29-years of age, the next five years are really his window.  He won three majors by age 25, only Jack and Tiger have done that. He also joins an elite group of recognizable names and faces who you can just call Rory.

Rory also plans on playing the Genesis Open in Los Angeles beginning February 17th.
