McIlroy leaving nothing to chance in 3rd bid for Grand Slam

"The more I can just play the golf course and nearly make it seem like second nature to me, where to hit the balls on the greens and where to start putts and know where the pin positions are. the more that can become second nature, the better", McIlroy said.

But the gates have now been reopened to patrons and the Par 3 contest was scheduled to begin half an hour late at 12.30pm local time (5.30pm BST).

Asked whether he'd earned his place in the conversation about favorites this week, he broke into a broad smile and copped an attitude not unlike his favorite rappers. "I know the first tee shot I'm going to be really, really pumped up, so I don't know how it's going to go". But after going 0 for 42 in the biggest events of an otherwise successful career, his breakthrough win came at Augusta National in 2004.

Augusta National chairman Billy Payne wore one during his annual pre-tournament press conference as he outlined how Palmer, a four-time Masters champion, would be remembered following his death at the age of 87 last September.

The reporters snickered, but Corcoran urged Snead to do just this in his practice round: "Sam, show 'em how you used to murder par in your bare dogs back home in the hills", he said.

Sandwiched between his 2012 and 2015 Masters wins, Bubba Watson became the second player of the day, after Kevin Na, to card a 10 in 2014's final round.

"I'm proud of my entire round", said the 23-year-old, who has finished second, first and second in his three Masters appearances. "What I would say is certainly I do feel like I belong here, that I belong where I am right now". "The short game is going to be very important". "But I learned that, you know, if I'm having a good day, I can face the No. 1 player in the world".

Toronto's Menu Palace has its finger on the pulse of every restaurant in the city, and provides you. Trust me, he's certainly capable of it and he'll win at least one.

"Phil is far better prepared than I (was)".

"It's not a tough place to be put in, but it was a round of golf and nothing more".

As dentists, we see many different types of patients in our day-to-day practice. His "gossamer" touch on the greens and impressive power game could disprove the notion that experience matters at the Masters. The strength of character he displayed under great stress was fantastic. I feel like I understand how to play the golf course a lot better than I did five years ago for sure and that I have the shots that are required. I expect to be able to get out there and contend to win the tournament, and that's the way that I have to look at it.
