Rory McIlroy is at a pivotal point in his career. And he knows it.
“Right now I’ve had a pretty good career, but I know I can do better,” McIlroy told Living Golf’s Shane O’Donoghue in a reflective interview.
He sits sixth in golf’s world rankings, having won the Arnold Palmer Invitational earlier this year and clinched the big money Tour Championship and FedEx Cup double in late 2016.Despite this relative success, it’s been almost four years since the 29-year-old last won one of golf’s four major championships.
In the time since McIlroy’s 2014 PGA Championship triumph — his fourth major win in a little over three years — rivals such as Jordan Spieth, Dustin Johnson, Jason Day and Justin Thomas have arrived on the scene.
In April, the Northern Irishman had a shot at claiming the one major to have so far eluded him — the Masters.
