Golf: The greatest shot of the day…Par 3

Rory McIlroy getting a congratulatory hug from his father Jerry upon winning the 2011 U.S. Open


Did you see it?  Did you see the eyes?  Could you hear their hearts pumping?  Check the arms.  This was no obligatory embrace.  It was a grab and hold, man sized hug and a declaration of deep love between a father and son.  There was enough pride, love and appreciation in this moment to feed thousands of Fathers this day.  To me it was the finest shot of the tournament.  I loved it.
