Rory McIlroy Seeks Advice from Tiger Woods’ Former Coach, Butch Harmon, Ahead of Masters Tourney


Apr 3, 2024

Rory McIlroy sought guidance from Butch Harmon after struggling in his recent PGA Tour events. The world number two golfer is hoping to address his game issues before competing in The Masters, where he has the opportunity to become the sixth player to win all four men’s majors. With just one top-20 finish this season, McIlroy turned to Harmon for help, revealing that he had previously worked with the renowned coach sporadically over the years.

Butch Harmon, who famously coached Tiger Woods during his early major wins, is now assisting McIlroy in improving his game. McIlroy’s long-time coach is Michael Bannon, but the four-time major winner has also worked with Pete Cowen. Before meeting with Harmon in Las Vegas, McIlroy shared a heartwarming moment with his daughter Poppy, who questioned why he needed a golf lesson when he already knew how to play.

Harmon’s coaching expertise has helped several golfers achieve major triumphs, including Phil Mickelson, Dustin Johnson, and Greg Norman. Despite having nine unsuccessful attempts at Augusta to complete the career Grand Slam, McIlroy remains determined to succeed. His best finish at The Masters was second place in 2022, and he has had five other top-10 performances at the prestigious tournament. With Harmon’s guidance, McIlroy hopes to elevate his game and achieve his goal of winning The Masters.
