U.S Open 2011: Rory McIlroy Celebrates First Major Win On Twitter

Rory McIlroy won the 2011 U.S. Open on Sunday in dominating fashion. Then, like the rest of the world these days, he took to Twitter to celebrate.

Thanks to everyone for all the messages over the past few hours. It was a very special week for me. Proud to be a major champion!less than a minute ago via Twittelator Favorite Retweet Reply

That came hours after he had actually won the trophy, and after afew beers from the top of the trophy. So he was probably feeling in a pretty good mood at the time of this tweet. But it goes to show how gracious Rory McIlroy is, and how good of a face he will be for golf moving forward. He was very polite when he lost the lead at the Masters in April, and he was even more polished in victory on Sunday.
