Swing-o-meter: how British is Rory after today's round?

Our highly scientific gizmo has been paying very close attention to how the TV commentators have been describing Rory today.

AS YOU’LL KNOW if you’ve been following our hole-by-hole coverage, Rory had a solid day at Sandwich today, going around in 69 to move himself back to level par for the tournament.

The Holywood kid is only four shots off the lead heading into the weekend’s play and, with conditions unpredictable, there is a growing sense that Rory is an ideal position to challenge for his second Major.

At least, that’s how it sounds if you’ve been listening to the commentary on the Beeb.

Take a look below to see how today’s developments affected our McIlroy swing-o-meter.
