The 19th Hole Golf Show: Why is Rory McIlroy struggling?


Rory McIlroy stunned golf with a 9-over 80 to open the Irish Open on Thursday. Combined with his 78 to miss the cut at the BMW PGA Championship, is that reason to worry about his major chances this summer?

We delve into the Dallas deluge that is the AT&T Byron Nelson and wonder if some guys might just be going through the motions this week.

We also give some love to the NCAA Women's Golf Championship and the Stanford Cardinal, including the very clutch Mariah Stackhouse.
