DUBAI. — Rory McIlroy loves being part of the conversation, especially when it comes to the Masters golf tournament. The world number two, who is defending his Dubai Desert Classic title this week, will head to Augusta National in early April trying to win the one major championship that has eluded him and complete a career Grand Slam. Golf legend Lee Trevino, in a recent interview, said he was sure McIlroy would achieve more than one Grand Slam in his career, but the 26-year-old said such talk does not alleviate any pressure on him.
“Of course, you always want to be part of the discussion, even if sometimes it gets to you or fills your head with thoughts that you don’t maybe want in your head at certain points,” said McIlroy. — AFP.
