Johannesburg, Apr 29: Northern Irish golfer Rory McIlroy has reportedly confirmed his participation at next month’s BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth in a bid to win the European Tour’s flagship event for the first time.
The two-time Major winner has bounced back to near top form this year following a disappointing 2013 and has three top 10 finishes in five European Tour appearances in 2014.
According to Sport24, although McIlroy has struggled at Wentworth to date, McIlroy, who won the US Open in 2011 and US PGA Championship in 2012, said that he is keen to win the event as it is always one of the highlights of the year.
McIlroy further said that he believes his game is in much better shape going into the tournament for which he is feeling confident about his chances of performing well at Wentworth.
McIlroy further said that Wentworth always kicks off the golf season in Europe, leading up to The Open Championship, and hoped that a good performance there can launch a successful summer for him.
McIlroy is the latest star attraction to confirm his participation in the tournament joining players such as US Open Champion Justin Rose, Ryder Cup hero Ian Poulter, two-time runner-up Lee Westwood, Sergio Garcia and Race to Dubai winner Henrik Stenson, the report added. (ANI)
