McIlroy adds events in bid to end US Open slump
Which tournaments will Rory McIlroy play during the 2018-19 season? As soon as any changes are made, you will be able to read about them right here…
Where has Rory McIlroy played so far?
McIlroy has had a fantastic start to the 2019 season and has played in two events since the New Year.
He teed it up at the Sentry Tournament of Champions, the Farmers Insurance Open, Genesis Open and the WGC-Mexico Championship where he finished inside the top 5 on all four occasions.
The Northern Irishman continued his fine form at the Honda Classic before heading to TPC Sawgrass where he recorded his first victory of the season.
He then went to the WGC-Match Play Championship where he was defeated by Tiger Woods in the round of 16.
McIlroy’s hopes of a career grand slam will have to wait for another year as he finished outside the top 20 in a bid for his first green jacket.
The 30-year-old then made an appearance at Quail Hollow on his birthday weekend where he finished in a tie for 8th before a T11 finish at the PGA Championship.
Where next on the Rory McIlroy 2019 schedule?
McIlroy is also starting to piece together is calendar for later in the year and will make his debut at the RBC Canadian Open in June at Hamilton Golf & Country Club before he heads to Pebble Beach for the US Open.
But before he goes north of the border, McIlroy has decided to add the Memorial to his schedule.
“My record in the US Open hasn’t been very good the last few years,” said McIlroy, who has missed the cut in each of the last three years, “so I wanted to mix it up a little bit.
“It’s going to be my third tournament in a row, playing Memorial, Canada and then Pebble. Looking forward to that run of golf and looking forward to getting my game sharp and in good shape for that major.”
After that, McIlroy will turn his attentions to Europe, but he has decided to give the Irish Open a swerve and will play the Scottish Open at Renaissance a week before the Open in his homeland.
He will then play at the European Masters in August.
What are McIlroy’s exemptions?
The Northern Irishman has plenty of exemptions due to his world ranking and number of major wins, this will see him play in all of the major championships and he will likely play in most, if not all of the World Golf Championship events.
