Rory McIlroy seeks advice from Butch Harmon, former coach of Tiger Woods, ahead of Masters tournament

Tiger Woods’ former coach, Butch Harmon, is now guiding Rory McIlroy as he seeks to improve his game ahead of the upcoming Masters tournament. The world number two is determined to become only the sixth player to win all four men’s majors if he emerges victorious at Augusta National.

McIlroy, 34, has had a difficult season with just one top-20 finish on the PGA Tour. In search of guidance, he turned to Harmon, who previously worked with Woods for his first eight major victories before parting ways in 2002.

Harmon has a distinguished coaching history and has guided Phil Mickelson, Dustin Johnson, and Greg Norman to major victories. Meanwhile, McIlroy has yet to secure a win at Augusta National to complete the career Grand Slam, with his best finish being a second-place result in 2022 alongside five other top-10 performances.

Prior to meeting Harmon in Las Vegas for a golf lesson, McIlroy shared a heartwarming moment with his daughter Poppy. She innocently questioned why her father needed another golf lesson. Her simple insight resonated with McIlroy and was some of the best advice he had received in years.

With Harmon’s guidance and input on his game, McIlroy hopes to overcome the challenges he has faced this season and emerge victorious at The Masters tournament.
