Rory McIlroy says a recent visit to Tiger Woods’ house has given him a fresh perspective on focusing on the major events.
15-time major champion Woods will not be playing at this week’s Masters at Augusta after he suffered injuries in a car accident in February.
This is the 85th edition of the Masters at Augusta National and gives the 31-year-old Northern Irishman an opportunity to complete the career Grand Slam.
It’s Rory’s 13th Masters and he says he learned a lot from Woods after seeing him at home recently.
“In his family room he’s got his trophy cabinet and it’s his 15 major trophies, and I said “that’s really cool, where are all the others and he said, “I don’t know”.
“He says, his mum has some, a few in the office and a few wherever, and I went on the drive home and I was thinking that that’s all he cared about, all he cared about, so how easy must that have felt to him to win all the others, so that’s like a cool perspective to have right?” said Rory.
