Rory McIlroy had to work a little harder and sweat a little more. No matter. Just like his other two majors, this British Open was never really in doubt.
With two key birdies around the turn, and a powerful tee shot at just the right moment, McIlroy completed a wire-to-wire victory Sunday at Royal Liverpool and captured the third leg of the career Grand Slam. The 25-year-old from Northern Ireland joined some elite company beyond the names on the silver claret jug.
Jack Nicklaus (23) and Tiger Woods (24) are the only other players to capture three different majors by the time they were 25. McIlroy won the 2011 U.S. Open at Congressional and the 2012 PGA Championship at Kiawah Island, both by eight shots. (AP Photo/Peter Morrison)

Happy Independence Day to all Americans celebrating the 4th of July around the world!
Just because the #USAMNT lost in the #WorldCup does not mean there’s no reason to celebrate this 4th of July. Case in point - No American wants to miss a 4th of July BBQ and fireworks.
The “Internet of things,” the “Connected Home,” the “Smart Home,” whatever you want to call it, it’s just a fancy way of turning your stuff on and off with your smartphone. Now GE has introduced a cheaper way to stay on the couch and…
There’s pretty much an app for anything these days… Including the lightbulb.
There is now an app called ‘HEY’ - For when your ‘YO’ app just isn’t enough.
Put another way: Is the new app everyone’s talking about awful or awesome?
As you may have heard, there was a big rhumpus this week over the release of a new app. No, we aren’t talking about Facebook’s Snapchat-like Slingshot. We are talking instead about the amazingly simple—if perhaps not amazing— messaging app, Yo.
That app, created by Or Abel and already funded to the tune of some $1 million, essentially does one thing only: It allows users to send the word “Yo” to their friends. The service proved popular in its first week—even topping Slingshot in the App Store yesterday, while racking up 100,000 downloads. Abel sees his creation signaling the demise of lengthy push notifications and told us that it “really helps cut through the noise.” That may be true but we couldn’t help but wonder: Is he a mad genius of marketing who has built something that might change the way we communicate, or simply, well, mad? We turned to three experts in the field to help us figure it all out.
Yo! Is the new app awful or awesome?
Can you relate to this? The only thing missing is time well-spent on your smartphone.

Brands have spent a lot of time, money and resources building up their social media presence. Now they are looking at how to monetize it in a way that’s recognized by the business.
