Rory McIlroy ready to step up at The Masters

Edwin Huxley - Thursday 10.04.14, 04:23am

Rory McIlroy has insisted he is ready to take the role of Tiger Woods at this year’s Masters and be the man to watch at Augusta in the first major of the year. Woods was forced to withdraw from the Masters following surgery on his back, opening the door for McIlroy to step into the limelight left by the absent world number one.

After his victories at the 2011 US Open and then the 2012 US PGA Championship, McIlroy won his first two majors at a younger age than Woods, but the Northern Irishman has so far failed to add to his collection. While Augusta holds some dark memories for McIlroy following his famous final round meltdown in 2011, the 24-year old will still head into the first major of the year as the Betfair favourite for the title.

With the first major of the year fast approaching, McIlroy has admitted he is looking to use the tournament as a chance to establish himself as a dominant force in the sport, knowing victory at Augusta would be the best way for him to prove to Betfair fans that he is the man to beat this year.

“You are getting so many different winners and there are not as many guys dominating the sport like in the past with Tiger, Vijay and Phil,” said McIlroy.

“I’d like to establish myself as that sort of player and someone’s got to step up, so I’m trying to be that person and it would be a great place to start next week.”

Following on from a dismal 2013 season, McIlroy has found himself down in seventh in the world rankings and some way away from where he wants to be. But a morale-boosting victory in December ensured McIlroy didn’t end the year without a title to his name and now the 24-year old will be hoping to re-establish himself as top dog in Tiger’s absence.

Rory McIlroy ends season on a high

Edwin Huxley - Tuesday 03.12.13, 18:40pm

Rory McIlroy pipped Adam Scott to win the Australian Open and claim his first tournament victory of 2013, with the Northern Irishman clinching the victory on the final hole at Royal Sydney. After a season in which he has failed to produce anything like his best golf, McIlroy was delighted to have recorded a tournament win before the end of the year.

After starting the tournament as the strong favourite with Betfair.com, home-favourite Scott looked on course to win the Australian ‘Triple Crown’ by holding onto his lead during the final round. While McIlroy produced some impressive golf in Sydney, it was Scott who looked to be on his way to victory up until the dying moments of the tournament.

Despite a wobbly few moments on the back-nine that may have worried those who backed the Aussie with Betfair before the tournament, Scott managed to keep McIlroy at bay up until the 18th which he begun a shot clear of the former world number one. A club selection error on the final hole of the tournament saw Scott finish with a bogey while watching McIlroy notch up a birdie to steal the title from under the Aussie’s nose.

The Northern Irishman was obviously relieved to have secured the victory, admitting he had targeted winning a title before the end of a tough year.

“To be able to play your best golf when you need to, when you’re under pressure, you can’t ask for more. The perfect scenario was to achieve a win before the end of the season and thankfully I have done that,” admitted the world number six.

With the monkey now off his back before the end of the 2013, McIlroy will be able to head into the new season with some genuine belief that he can get himself back up the rankings and in the minds of Betfair customers ahead of the Masters.
