Tiger aims for history at Farmers Insurance Open

Tiger aims for history at Farmers Insurance Open

"I don't think it irks me or gets me annoyed that I'm not holding that position", McIlroy said of the No. 1 ranking. "That's something I'm going to try and improve this year". "Three of the four majors past year, I had started slow".

"I'm very pleased to get something in the red and get over to south tomorrow".

"That's the mindset I've learned".

Day was a late withdrawal from both the Australian Open and Presidents Cup over the summer due to the back complaint, describing his feelings of anger and frustration at having to watch the worldwide team fall just short against the Tiger Woods-led U.S. team at Royal Melbourne.

Starting on the 10th, McIlroy got off to a blistering start by birdieing his opening hole, and rectified a dropped shot at the 13th with a birdie on the 14th. The Open championship will be followed by the Olympics and the US PGA Tour's FedEx Cup playoffs and the Ryder Cup at Whistling Straits in Wisconsin.

He didn't seem to tiptoe around any layout.

After a tie for 19th in the BMW Championship, McIroy shot bookend 66s to seize the Tour Championship at East Lake, beating runner-up Xander Schauffele by four shots. Last year, in his first start in the Farmers Open, he notched a 65 on the North Course in the second round, and a pair of 69s on the weekend led to a tie for fifth beyond victor Justin Rose.

McIlroy has been in the world's top spot seven different times for a total of 95 weeks.

Rickie Fowler, Patrick Reed, Jordan Spieth and Tony Finau are also in the mix, but world No. 1 Brooks Koepka isn't taking part. "To be able to say you've held that spot for any amount of time in your career is huge", McIlroy said, via Golf Digest.

The possibility of returning to the competition nearly improved to that of 44 in the first tee, but after bogey his second hole, he calmed down with a birdie in the 13th, his fourth, and a birdie in the second nine. dragged him to three of the advantage at the end of the first day. But it's been a while since he's owned the world, and that was for a mere week in mid-September 2015. Now, you know, like Matt Wolf, they grew up obviously watching the Tiger a bit, but watching guys like me and Dustin, and this is that type of player, who is going on tour now, so when I used to come to the golf course and think, well, maybe five or ten people s a chance, now it's 40, 50, 60 guys who play in this game. "I'm so amped up to play that I really have to dumb myself down, to calm myself down to play".

"But I feel pretty good about how things have progressed".

McIlroy also is coming off a long break. "A little rusty around the greens but with a little more practice I'll feel a little more composed as the week goes on. It's just got a cool vibe".
