It would also explain his up and down play as of late as his mind was likely focused on the impending birth of his child and not golf.

On Thursday morning, Rory took to Twitter to announce that his wife gave birth to their daughter, Poppy Kennedy Mcllroy, on Monday afternoon at Jupiter Medical Center.

What a difference just a few weeks can make.

After a runner-up finish at the PGA Championship, Johnson arrived at The Northern Trust in Boston, the first event of the FedEx Cup Playoffs and proceeded to lap the field. Not only did he shoot a Friday 60 that easily could have been a 55, he won the event at a nearly historical 30-under par. As if all of that wasn't enough, the win moved Dustin back
