Player Profile: Rory McIlroy
The four-time Major Champion heads to Whistling Straits with four Ryder Cup wins already under his belt, and he will be looking to add a fifth after being part of the European team who beat the United States at Le Golf National three years ago.
Since his debut in 2010, McIlroy has evolved into one of his continent’s most experienced and accomplished Ryder Cup players. Overall, the Northern Irishman has played in 24 matches, winning 11, halving four and losing nine, with an overall points total of 13.
The Northern Irishman began 2021 brightly by claiming a solo third in Abu Dhabi and then went on to win the Wells Fargo Championship on the PGA TOUR in May.
Since that triumph he has collected three further top seven finishes, with his best being a solo fourth finish at the BMW Championship.
McIlroy has found form at a great time, having only finished outside the top 14 once in his last five starts and qualifies, currently, via the European Points List.
