Rory McIlroy shares his thoughts on the shortened major season, and how he feels entering the FedEx Cup playoffs on SiriusXM PGA Tour Radio’s “On Course”

Published

Earlier this week, Rory McIlroy sat down with Brian Crowell and Frank Darby on SiriusXM PGA Tour Radio’s “On Course” and discussed a range of subjects including his thoughts on the shortened major season, and how he feels about his game ahead of the FedEx Cup playoffs.

Speaking on the new condensed major season, McIlroy stated that while he’s not sure that the “small window” is the best thing for the game in terms of exposure, the new schedule now gives players a higher chance of having a very successful season.

“It felt to me as if I blinked and the major season was over…Whether that’s a good thing for the game in terms of exposure I’m not too sure. 

You know, I think it’s a good thing for the players because if you get hot and you’re able to sustain a really good run of golf from April through to the middle of the summer you could have a really successful season. 

The Ulsterman kicks off his FedEx Cup campaign at this week’s Northern Trust, and speaking to Crowell and Darby, McIlroy discussed his consistent play and how he is having the best putting year of his career thus far.

“My game feels good. You know, if you look at my stats all year I’m number one in a bunch of different categories. Number one in scoring average. I’m putting it the best I ever have, I’m top 30 in putting for the first time in my career. So everything’s in the right place.”

The 30-year-old has two victories to his name in 2019 but he believes that number could and should be higher, and stated his intent to end the season with a second FedEx Cup title.

“You know, I wish I could have capitalized on that good golf a little bit more and had a couple more wins this season but I’ve had a bunch of final rounds and in contention so it would be nice to knock a couple other tournaments off by the end of this little stretch. 

So I’m second in the FedEx Cup right now. I want to really give it a good go over the next few weeks and try to win another FedEx Cup. That would be a nice way to end the year.”

“On Course” with Brian Crowell and Frank Darby airs Wednesday’s at 8 PM ET on the SiriusXM PGA Tour Radio channel.

    At first I wasn’t sure how I would like the change of the PGA to May. After the first season, I think it was a smart move. I think it gives the FedEx Cup a better stage and gets more of the top players to play the first three events (eligible).

Bryson DeChambeau reports 403-yard driver carry

Published

on

He may not have been in tournament action last week, but Bryson DeChambeau was continuing his hunt for added distance and reported reaching some eye-popping milestones.

On his social media channels, DeChambeau posted an image of his launch monitor, and the numbers speak for themselves, with a carry distance of 403 yards combined with 211mph ball speed.

As Bryson added in the post, those numbers were achieved without the 48-inch driver which he is hoping to put into play at next month’s Masters.

As many have noted on social media, should Bryson replicate that drive at Augusta National, then the Californian would be left with less than 50 yards for his approach to the devilishly difficult opening hole.
