Rory McIlroy had a picture-perfect swing at the age of three

Rory McIlroy has a swing that's suitable for framing and hanging in your family room. But like a number of golf great, the 23-year-old (he celebrated a birthday yesterday) spent hours practicing and perfecting his game from an early age.

The video you see above is of a three-year-old McIlroy working on his short game at home, and based on the footage, it's obvious his swing was pretty salty, even as a little tyke. Come to think of it, it's probably better than 99 percent of the golf swings you see on a typical Saturday at the local muni.

So there you go, folks; Rory McIlroy had a better swing than a lot of us at the age of three. Hopefully that makes you feel a little better about your golf game.
