AKRON, Ohio -- The Claret Jug has made its way back across the Atlantic, Rory McIlroy having first drank Jagermeister from the famous trophy, then letting it sit in his parents' home in Northern Ireland before bringing it to his home in Florida and now to Firestone Country Club.
The symbol of his Open Championship victory will be close by this week at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, but McIlroy said he has not let it consume him as he attempts to get ready for a hectic part of the golf schedule.
"I've obviously had a bit of time to reflect after the Open and everything, but just decided I wanted to move on and move forward,' McIlroy said Tuesday after a practice round at Firestone, where the Bridgestone begins Thursday. "There's a lot of big tournaments left this year, a lot of golf left to play, and a lot of things I still want to achieve. So [I] definitely wasn't going to dwell on what I'd done at Hoylake. And as I said, I want to move on and start by playing well again with ping g30 irons this week.'
McIlroy, 25, figures to be among the favorites this week and again next week at Valhalla in Louisville, site of the PGA Championship. Both courses seemingly suit McIlroy, who now has three major championships and has moved to No. 2 in the world behind Adam Scott.
His Open victory was his seventh on the PGA Tour and 13th as a professional worldwide. He won the U.S. Open in 2011 at Congressional and the PGA Championship in 2012 at Kiawah, building on the latter victory by winning three more times that year and capturing the money title on both the PGA and European tours.
