Rory McIlroy eyes major success after BMW Championship win

Rory McIlroy has claimed that he is happy with his game and is looking forward to competing for major titles after claiming victory at the BMW Championship.


Rory McIlroy produced a stunning final round at Wentworth on Sunday to win the BMW Championship and the Northern Irishman has now targeted further success, claiming that he feels like this a new beginning for him.

“I think it is the start of something. I could feel my game sort of bubbling and it was getting there. A win validates that,” said McIlroy.

“There are still three majors to play this year, a lot of golf left, a lot of big tournaments to try and win. So even though we’re nearly halfway through the season, I feel like mine’s just beginning.


“I think this victory, against one of the best fields of the year, shows that I am on the right track again.

“Hopefully it won’t be long before I am contending in majors and having a chance to win those again.”


The 25-year-old’s first opportunity to add to his total of two majors will be at Pinehurst in next month’s US Open but McIlroy has admitted that he doesn’t know much about the course.

“I can only go on what I have read and heard about Pinehurst because I have never been there,” he continued.

“I hear it is going to be a long, long golf course which I am looking forward to.” Incredibly, the win at Wentworth was McIlroy’s first on European soil and the victory will come as a big boost to Ryder Cup captain Paul McGinley, who the Northern Irishman says he spoke to during the past week.

“I was speaking to Paul, just talking about pairings and what he’s thinking. It sounded like the way he was talking, even without this win, like I was going to be on the team.

“I am looking forward to it. We do not get a chance to come back and play in the UK and Ireland very often. It is going to be great. I think I am pretty much cemented on the team now and looking forward to that.”
