Sometimes, you just know.

After a convincing U.S. Open victory this past weekend, there's no question that 22-year-old Rory McIlory has the skills to compete with golf's best. But like most champions, McIlory's talent was recognized at an early age.

This archived video segment shows a 9-year-old McIlory on UTV's Kelly Show, chipping golf balls into his mother's washing machine and drawing comparisons to Tiger Woods. The young golf prodigy had just won the Under-10 World Championship in Florida.
