Rory McIlroy reacts to criticism directed at his caddy: I know what I'm doing

Rory McIlroy's caddy Harry Diamond is often the target of criticism. The Northern Irishman defended Diamond and praised his influence. "I think over the years I've proven I know what I'm doing out here," McIlroy told BBC Sport Northern Ireland.

"I wouldn't have him on the bag if I didn't think he was good at what he did." Rory and Diamond proved to be a great tandem. You can see that there is chemistry between them and that they understand each other.

"Harry's a really calming presence to have by my side," said McIlroy. "He's grown into his role really well. I think our record speaks for itself. We've won a ton. We've won two FedEx Cups together."


The Majors remain McIlroy's goal in the coming period. He is satisfied with his form and performance. If he continues to play like this, the majors won't be far away. The most important thing is focus and concentration.

"I've no doubt in my mind if I keep playing the golf that I'm playing currently, I'll have a lot more chances to win major championship," he said. "The more I put myself in position to win, the more comfortable I'm going to feel in that position and ultimately I'm going to step through the door and get another one.

"It's funny it feels like I'm on a journey to win my first one again because it's been so long since I've done it. That just maybe gives people more of a perspective where my mind's at. It's not just 'he's won four…why can't he win another?' "I feel that was such a long time ago and I'm sort of a different person now and I need to relearn sort of how to do it. I'm on that journey but I'm getting close."
