Well as I’m sure you know, we have another big weekend of golf ahead. It’s the Bridgestone Invitational in America, at Firestone Country Club, a tournament that has been dominated by Tiger Woods over recent years.
It’s the last tournament before the final major of the year at Oak Hill, and it seems like only yesterday we were talking about the start of The Masters!
Rory McIlroy who won the US PGA last year will be hoping for a good week at Firestone so he can feel in good spirits when he goes to defend his title next week.
McIlroy says he feels in a positive frame of mind this week, and feels even better than he did last year when he also had a bit of a slump before the same event.
It really is a big couple of weeks for McIlroy, he will want to get a top 10 finish in either of the next two tournaments and then carry that on until the end of the year. Once you get out of the habit of finishing in the top 10 every week, it can be very hard to get back into that habit, and he will be concerned however much he might come across as not being.
