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

Rory McIlroy is on a mission to win The Masters and become only the sixth player to achieve the career Grand Slam. With just one top-20 finish this season, he turned to Butch Harmon, Tiger Woods’ former coach, for guidance.

Harmon, 80, has a distinguished coaching history and previously worked with Woods for his first eight major victories before parting ways in 2002. McIlroy had visited Harmon for a golf lesson recently and typically sees him every few years for input on his game. Despite having his long-time coach Michael Bannon and having worked with Pete Cowen in the past, McIlroy felt that Harmon’s expertise was what he needed at this stage of his career.

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 he admitted it was 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, with his best finish being a second-place result in 2022 alongside five other top-10 performances. With Harmon by his side, he is determined to finally break through at Augusta and achieve his ultimate goal.
