Johannesburg, Feb.16 (ANI): World number three golfer Rory McIlroy believes that he can regain the numero uno position in time for the Augusta Masters by making a strong debut at this week’s Northern Trust Open in Los Angeles.
McIlroy endured an injury-wrecked 2015 season and slipped to third behind Jordan Spieth and Australia’s Jason Day in the latest world rankings.
The four-time major champion said that he hopes to make a solid start to the season in California, insisting that he was trying to reclaim the top spot as quickly as he could, Sport24 reported.
The Northern Trust Open at the Riviera Country Club tees off on Thursday. (ANI)
