Rory McIlroy eyes elusive victory at British Masters

Rory McIlroy's season on the PGA Tour ended in disappointment on Sunday

Other notable players: Hunter Mahan, six-time PGA TOUR winner, trying to get his card back after playing on three Ryder Cup and Presidents Cup teams; Stuart Appleby, nine-time PGA TOUR winner; Angel Cabrera, two-time major champion; Ben Crane, five-time PGA TOUR winner; Sam Saunders, Arnold Palmer's grandson.

McIlroy recently fell to world number eight and has failed to win a single title this season.

Perhaps he is being driven by the desire to avoid a second season without a win, but either way it will be great for golf fans in the North East.


"I'm looking forward to playing my first British Masters for a while, McIlroy said as reported by the European Tour's website". He has two tournaments left to break that drought and will play at Close House, near Newcastle, before finishing his season in Scotland at the Alfred Dunhill Links. It looks like he has done a brilliant job along with Sky Sports and Close House in putting the event together and hopefully the crowds will come support us. It's road trip time!

The four-time major victor has confirmed he will now be playing in the European Tour event, which is being hosted by former world No 1 Lee Westwood, before bringing his 2017 campaign to a conclusion at the following week's Dunhill Links Championship in Scotland. Now completing his first decade in the pro ranks, in many ways it has come full circle ahead of the next chapter of his storied career to date.
