Rory McIlroy is confident he can break his four-year Major duck when he heads to this week’s US PGA Championship at Bellerive Country Club.
The Northern Irishman has four majors on his CV but the last of those came at this tournament in 2014, triumphing by a shot over Phil Mickelson in this tournament at Valhalla.
McIlroy has recorded eight top-10s in his last 14 majors, most recently securing a tie for second at the Open Championship and appears to be closing in again on his best form.
The 29-year-old looked in good shape last weekend at the WGC-Bridgestone International, but fell out of contention with a closing three-over par round of 73.
Despite the disappointment, the Ryder Cup star has still moved up to fifth in the rankings and appears to be trending in the right direction, as he continues to prepare for the final Major of the year.
Four long years after his last win in one of the game’s four biggest events, McIlroy feels he is within touching distance of his best form in St Louis.
“It’s not as if my game’s in bad shape at all,” said the 29-year-old.
“It’s just I haven’t won as much as I would have liked, but there’s still plenty of time to change that.”
“I’ve kept giving myself chances this year. I haven’t closed out those tournaments as I would have liked, but at least I’m putting myself in position, and that’s all I can do.”
