Rory McIlroy seeks advice from Butch Harmon, former coach of Tiger Woods, ahead of Masters tournament

Rory McIlroy has enlisted the help of Butch Harmon, Tiger Woods’ former coach, as he seeks to improve his game ahead of his latest attempt to win The Masters. With just one top-20 finish on the PGA Tour this season, the 34-year-old is determined to become only the sixth player to win all four men’s majors if he emerges victorious at the upcoming tournament.

Despite having longtime coach Michael Bannon, McIlroy also worked with Pete Cowen in the past. However, he recently sought out Harmon for guidance, noting that he typically visits him every few years for input on his game.

Harmon, 80, previously worked with Woods for his first eight major victories before parting ways in 2002. He has a distinguished coaching history, having guided Phil Mickelson, Dustin Johnson, and Greg Norman to major victories.

Prior to meeting Harmon in Las Vegas, McIlroy shared a heartwarming moment with his daughter Poppy, who innocently questioned why he needed another golf lesson. Her simple insight resonated with McIlroy and reminded him of some of the best advice he had received in years.

McIlroy has yet to secure a win at Augusta National to complete the career Grand Slam. His best finish was a second-place result in 2022 alongside five other top-10 performances.

With Harmon by his side and renewed focus on improving his game, McIlroy is determined to make history and become only the sixth player to win all four men’s majors.
