CRI Sports brings you the top ten prospects for this year's Open Championship at Sandwich, England.

Rory McIlroy

The young Ulsterman, who has represented Ireland, Europe and Britain & Ireland as both an amateur and a professional, was introduced to golf by his father at the age of 18 months and became the youngest-ever winner of both the West of Ireland Championship and the Irish Close Championship in 2005.

McIlroy entered the top 200 of the official world golf rankings for the first time 16 months after turning professional.

The 22-year-old recently won the 2011 US Open; a final round of 69 allowing him to claim his first major title while setting a 72-hole record.

After taking a three-week break from tournament golf, the world number four set his sights on his second Major at the Open Championship this week.
