Rory McIlroy aims to be greatest after maiden major win

Rory McIlroy is aiming to become the greatest golfer in the world following his maiden major victory at the Congressional Country Club.

The 22-year old Northern Irishman also paid tribute to his father and says he hopes to emulate the achievement of 18-time major winner Jack Nicklaus, who was just five months older than McIlroy when he won his first US Open in 1962.
