Paul McGinley: That man is the reason for Rory McIlroy's current success

Rory McIlroy had a great season and showed his qualities. Even more is expected from him next season, and what he lacks is a Majors title. Many expect that the Northern Irishman will win the much-desired Majors title next season.

European Ryder Cup captain Luke Donald is optimistic about McIlroy's future and believes that the Northern Irishman will reach the Majors trophy. "He is a hell of a player," said European Ryder Cup captain Luke Donald, as quoted by

"I am sure he is disappointed he has not won a major this year. But it would be a surprise if he did not have great opportunities again next year." Paul McGinley spoke about the positive influence of McIlroy's psychologist Bob Rotella.

This duo worked a lot on the mental aspect of the game, and the results were immediately visible. Their cooperation led to results. “Rory’s been frontline in all the stuff off the course and Rotella has channelled that in a very positive way,” McGinley told The Times.

"Michael Jordan found things he used as fuel and Rotella and McIlroy have used all that energy in a positive way too. All these things collided”.

Rory McIlroy: “The Masters was validation,”

Rory McIlroy is one of the biggest stars, and a real rise is still expected.

He will do his best to reach his goal. It seems that he is not far from it. The most important thing for him is the focus, an advantage, and he really has quality. “The Masters was validation,” says McGinley. “Whether you’ve done something with your swing or psychologically, you need the results to validate what you are doing.

“He got that. It’s not a given that this will continue, and he will still have ups and downs, but he seems to have figured out a lot about himself”. We look forward to the next challenges in the career of the Northern Irishman.
