Rory McIlroy heads to Wentworth this week for the European Tour's flasgship event saying he's playing the best golf of his career as he already starts to look at finishing off the career grand slam at next year's Masters.
McIlroy claimed his second FedEx Cup success at the end of the PGA Tour season, and now wants to chase down Brooks Koepka for the world number one spot, but one event in 2020 is already on his mind.
A third PGA Tour Player of the Year award win was a surprise for McIlroy, and although he had a great year, unlike the previous time he won in 2012 and 2014, he failed to win a major.
That elusive Masters title would finish off the career grand slam, and although it's a look time until Augusta, McIlroy already has it on his radar, and feels he is better equipped than ever to get over that final hurdle.
"I think if I look back at other years where I've had success, whether that be 2012 or 2014, I feel like I'm a better golfer now than I was then and that's all I can ask for," McIlroy told Sky Sports News.
Asked what he'd give to win the Masters, McIlroy added: "I'd give quite a lot! It's the one left for me. I've been very fortunate and lucky enough to win pretty much everything else there is to win in golf, so that's the last piece in the puzzle.
"I feel after a season like I've had that I'm more ready than ever to go and try and claim it and win it. Every time you go back there you get more and more comfortable, so hopefully next year is the year.
"I feel like I'm confident enough in my game that I'll have a good chance next year."
Wentworth week has moved from May to accommodate the new major schedule, which condensed all four majors into the first half of the year, with the Open now the final event in July.
McIlroy feels that overall it worked well.
"We're all creatures of habit and it felt very bunched together for quite a lot of us, but it's the way it is. We don't make the schedules and we are told where to play, so you have to be ready to play.
"I thought it worked well. I think people still had enough time to get ready for each big event. It keeps people a little bit more interested, particularly on this side of the pond with the FedExCup ending a little earlier.
"It's an adjustment for everyone, but I think by the time next year comes around I don't think you'll hear too much discussion about the schedule anymore."
