In order for Rory McIlroy to add another major to his list of majors, he needs to win the Masters at Augusta. His colleague, Tiger Woods is optimistic about McIlroy’s chances in this tournament. Many people consider Rory to be the favorite, and it doesn’t seem unlikely that the task will be an easy one for him.
“He will. It’s just a matter of time. Rory has the talent. He has the game. He has all the tools to win here. It’s just a matter of time. A lot of things have to happen to win at this golf course. A lot of things have to go right. I think Rory has shown over the years he’s learned how to play this golf course, and you just have to understand how to play it.”– Woods said, as quoted by golfmonthly.com Tiger Woods believes that if he does not achieve such success this year, he will certainly have great chances in the coming years.
“He’s been there. Last year he made a great run, put himself there. But I think that it’s just a matter of time; whether it’s this year or next or whenever it comes, he will get it done, and he will have a career Grand Slam.
It’s just what year it will be; it will definitely happen.”
Rory McIlroy and Scottie Scheffler
The Northern Irishman came close to winning last year, but Scottie Scheffler still showed more quality. It was a great performance from Rory last year, and he hopes that he can do the same this year as well.
“I was nine or 10 back of Scottie going into the last day and freewheeled and shot 64, and it would be great to have that feeling every single time you went out there and played. It doesn’t quite work that way, but the more I can get myself into the mindset, playing free, playing loose, not letting this place get you tentative, which it can do at times and what I’ve let it do to me over a number of years – yes, that’s the best way to get yourself around Augusta.”
