    ...record breaking winner of the US Open (golf) at 22 years of age. Northern Ireland is proud of you.

    Fantastic achievement - broke records for 36 and 54 hole scores and all 4 rounds under par. I think he is only 22 as well - amazing!

    A new star has burst on to the world stage - a true fairytale. Hope his role model is not one T Woods - or he'll be finished by the time he turns 23!! lol.

    The funny thing is, with only two previous wins under his belt, he was already financially secure for the rest of his life. His first car was a Ferrari, replaced by a Lambo...and his home!!!!!!

    It's not just NI that is proud of him. I think golf and sport in general should be proud. He seems to come across as a fairly laid-back and unassuming chap, and I wish him the very best in his endeavours. I watched, enthralled, at his performance.

    His greatest achievement, in my eyes at least, is the manner in which he has obviously put the trials and tribulations of the Masters behind him. Quick learner!

    And his dad is a gent.

    He was bar steward at the Rugby/Hockey club where my wife is a member. At the end of one year they bought Gerry a new soap bag and stuff, because apparently his young son was good at golf and they travelled a fair bit!!

    Whom the gods [ tabloids] would destroy, they first make mad. Hope he's got Max Clifford on SpeedDial. Wonder if they have hacked his phone yet?

    Tabloids looking for a cheap shot. Like you I hope he has an experienced team of "minders" around him who have his safety in all fields as their true concern.
