Rory McIlroy Seeks Coaching Advice from Butch Harmon, Former Coach of Tiger Woods, Ahead of the Masters

Rory McIlroy Takes Advice from Tiger Woods’ Coach Butch Harmon in Quest for Masters Glory

Rory McIlroy, ranked number two in the world of golf, has enlisted the help of Butch Harmon, former coach of Tiger Woods, in a bid to improve his game. This decision comes after a difficult season where he has struggled to achieve success in his PGA Tour events, with just one top-20 finish this year.

Harmon, who previously worked with Woods during his early major victories, has been a trusted advisor for McIlroy in the past. Although he already has a long-time coach in fellow Northern Irishman Michael Bannon, McIlroy occasionally seeks additional input from experts like Harmon and Englishman Pete Cowen.

In a recent podcast interview, McIlroy shared that he visited Harmon for a golf lesson and received valuable insights into his game. He mentioned that even his daughter Poppy questioned the need for a lesson, believing that he already knows how to play golf. However, McIlroy found her perspective to be a refreshing reminder of the simplicity inherent in the game.

McIlroy’s quest to win The Masters and complete the career Grand Slam has been marked by nine attempts at Augusta, with his best finish being a second place in 2022. Despite his impressive track record and multiple top-10 finishes, McIlroy remains determined to overcome challenges and achieve his ultimate goal with the help of mentors like Harmon.
