Rory McIlroy will hop the Masters Par-3 Contest in the coming week in the expectations that it would serve him end off the career Grand Slam at the Augusta National.
Speaking to several media houses, he told that he is not going to play the Par-3 Contest in 2016 as this is just too much dogfight and this is a bit of a beguilement.
Rory, who has played in Masters a total of 7 times with a 4th spot finish previous year his best result, missed the pre-tournament event just only one time. In that year, i.e.in 2011, Northern Irishman went to the back 9 on Sunday in the search for that green jacket, just to fall into a tie for fifteenth after a final-round 80.
Smylie Kaufman, during their WGC Dell Match Play game around 2 weeks ago, was saying Rory McIlroy regarding his visit to the Augusta National a few days earlier, getting all set for his first Masters. Rory wanted to know what he thought of this place.
McIlroy told that he told that he went to do some prep work and it appears that there are a lot of birdies up there. Now a veteran of 7 Masters, Rory might just smile.
McIlroy chuckled saying. He told Smylie that he had a tale regarding the day a series of birdies was made. In fact, it was a record number of birdies.
Rory recalled that he played with Anthony Kim when he made eleven birdies. Yeah, there are plenty of birdies out there.
