Beating Schaeffler and leaping to second place in the world rankings… McIlroy is now the ‘Masters’

Rory McIlroy (Northern Ireland) is now aiming for the Masters.

McIlroy placed 3rd and 4th in the US Professional Golf (PGA) Tour World Golf Championship (WGC) Dell Technologies Match Play (total prize money of 20 million dollars) held at Austin Country Club (par 71) in Austin, Texas, USA on the 27th (Korean time)메이저사이트. In the final round, he beat Scotty Scheffler (USA) with a score of 2&1 (2 holes left, 1 hole left) and rose to 3rd place.

Through this tournament, McIlroy rose to number two in the world rankings. With a ranking point of 9.075, he narrowed the gap with Schaeffler (10.4070 points) in first place by 1.3318 points.

Now McIlroy looks to the Masters, his first major of the year. Like most top ranked players, he will not attend the Valero Texas Open this week and will prepare for the Masters.

McIlroy has not reached the top of a major since the PGA Championship in August 2014. Especially in major tournaments, luck does not follow. He was the leader at the Open last year, but fell to Cameron Smith (Australia) in the final round.

McIlroy, whose putting was his weakness, changed his putter ahead of the Masters. In the last match play before the Masters, I came out with a new putter and matched the sum.

The new putter is from Scotty Cameron, a model similar to the one he won at the 2011 U.S. Open. Not only that. He also changed the driver shaft from 44.5 inches to 44 inches.

He is thoroughly preparing for the Masters to the extent of making changes to the club. “I think the drivers fit better, and my putts got really good as the week went on,” McIlroy said. “But for the Masters, approach play is a really big key. The irons and wedges feel good this week.” .

He continued, “He’s more confident than he was last year at Augusta National Golf Club. But Masters shouldn’t be too confident.”

He also plans to go to Augusta National Golf Club this week to play a round to preview the course. McIlroy promised to win, “I always feel confident when I feel ready. I’ll make sure next week I feel like I’m ready.”
