"I just want to live my life like a normal 25-year-old," McIlroy said. "I know that that's sometimes hard to do because of the public spotlight that I'm under, or whatever it is. ... But, of course, you need a balance in your life where you are interested in other things. I'm not different than other 25-year-olds in the world."
He's a little different. McIlroy has a chance to win a second U.S. Open. They don't.
