Rory McIlroy has not won a major since 2014. There are a number of people who believe that the Northern Irishman will be able to reach the major in the near future and that he will be able to end his 'dry period' In a recent interview with a golf legend, Jack Nicklaus, he was asked what he thought about Rory McIlroy and the fact that he hasn't won a major for nine years.

There is no doubt in Nicklaus' mind that Rory has what it takes to succeed. It's a real mystery how he didn't reach the major until now. “I don't know really know what to make of it. Because he's very confident. He works very hard at it.

He's a good student of the game. He practises a lot."- he said, as quoted by golfmonthly.com

Jack Nicklaus: Concentration could be a problem

According to Nicklaus, the lack of concentration may be the cause of everything.

There is no doubt that Rory McIlroy has the quality to win the majors, but it would appear that the pressure of doing so is causing him problems right now. “I don't know whether his is a constant lack of being able to keep that concentration for the whole thing or not, because sometimes he is the par, par, par, double, 8.

He does that sometimes. And I said: ‘Why, Rory? Why does that happen?’ And he doesn’t know. Why he hasn't won in nine years? Kind of a mystery to a lot of people because he is so good”. In Jack's opinion, Rory will begin to win majors at some point in the future.

It is likely that many more will be added in the future as a result of this. “He’s going to wake up one morning and say: ‘Hey, I better, you know, get on the stick here and start winning some more Majors,’ because he's certainly going to win some more. I can't believe that he's not”.
