Rory McIloryIt’s a bright day for sport as Wimbledon starts today and golf fans will be basking in glory after Northern Irish golfer Rory McIlroy made a record breaking victory at the US Open last night.

I am so pleased for 22 year old Rory, who is now the youngest US Open champion since Bobby Jones is 1923. His record breaking win saw him score an unbelievable -16 under par score. It’s great to see him succeed so marvellously since a tiresome defeat at the Masters earlier this year.

Rory dedicate the victory to his Dad, which I can only presume was the most fantastic Father’s Day gift. What a fabulous victory for the Rory dubbed the ‘next Tiger Woods’- Congratulations!

On this side of the Atlantic players and spectators have got their fingers crossed for sunshine at Wimbledon, which starts today. The oldest tennis tournament in the world, and the only grand slam played on grass is a favourite of mine as it’s a sure way of telling that summer is in full swing.

Of course, Wimbledon means lots of traditional British tea’s… strawberries and cream, and we mustn’t forget the champagne.

If you’re off to Wimbledon have a fabulous time. I would recommend having a read of the official Wimbledon website which has some handy hint including how to get there and a great easy access guide for disabled guest. Enjoy.
