Young Northern Irishman Rory McIlroy admitted he has not set a target in his mind regarding the number of majors he wants to win during his career. I personally think it’s too early to start talking about this kind of stuff, he has only won two majors, maybe let’s start talking about this when he has won another two major’s in the next two years.
McIlroy already has the US Open and USPGA victories under his belt but says he will not base his career on chasing Jack Nicklaus’s record of 18 major victories.
McIlroy’s victory earlier this month in the USPGA moved him back to the top of the World No.1 but he said the success did not feel anything special to him.
“Life since winning the second one hasn’t changed at all,” he said. “It felt much different than the first. It felt normal, felt like this is what I’m supposed to do, these are the tournaments that I’m supposed to win.”
McIlroy will be the youngest winner of Europe’s Ryder Cup team in the showdown with the USA in just over 3 weeks, he says he thinks he is ready to be a leader on the team captained by Jose Maria Olazabal.
