Rory McIlroy wants boyish bounce back to rekindle major mojo

Carnoustie, Scotland( CNN) He’s the curly-haired kid who illuminated up Carnoustie as an amateur, and now Rory McIlroy hopes to channel some of that boyish ricochet as he tries a fifth major title at the Open this week.

McIlroy, a childhood prodigy from Northern Ireland, constructed his splashing on the wider golf scene as a chirpy 18 -year-old when the Open was last played at Carnoustie in 2007.

The cheerful, chubby youngster was tied fourth after the first round and aimed the week as the leading amateur, launching a career which has given him multiple spells as world No. 1 and yielded untold riches.
