Rory McIlroy five-putts at AT&T Pebble Beach Pro

Bill Murray pretends to kick a media member during the 3M Celebrity Challenge on Wednesday Feb. 7 2018 at the Pebble Beach Golf Links in Carmel Calif

Ahead of this week's Pebble Beach Pro-Am, the Australian said four-time Major victor McIlroy possesses all the tools to dominate the sport in a manner similar to Tiger Woods in the late 1990s and early 2000s but raised doubt over 'how much he wants it'.

He almost drove the green and putted his eagle attempt to within 10 feet.

"But, yeah, there's some other great players and everyone has chances to win every week and the fields are getting so much deeper, so it's just about putting yourself in the position and the more you do that, the more comfortable you are in that scenario".

"I'm just going through just a minor slump that is just set-up related".

He is at one-under heading to his third round at Pebble.

He knows the routine at Pebble having played seven times in the Dunhill Links on the European Tour. Furthermore, Woodland recorded a T5 finish here past year, showing his liking for Pebble Beach. The biggest difference between the two - excluding the magnificent weather for the week - is how he feels about his game and his outlook. "I'm very optimistic about this weekend and I'm optimistic about the year".




"Every mindset that I take into every tournament should be like, 'This could be my last tournament, '" Day said.

Johnson won this tournament in 2009 and 2010, and he nearly secured a third tournament win in 2014. He won the following year by getting up-and-down from the bunker on the 18th hole for a one-shot victory.

Though there were far too many continuing good signs in McIlroy's game to dwell on any negative. He shot 82 that day.

Johnson said he's approaching the form that saw him win three straight tournaments early past year before he fell on some stairs and hurt his back as he prepared to tee it up in the Masters. He spent last week at Sherwood Country Club in Ventura County with Wayne Gretzky, and even went over to Las Vegas to see swing coach Butch Harmon.

"I was expecting to play like this the first couple of weeks, so that was a little disappointing, " said Mickelson, who missed the cut at the Career-Builder Challenge and tied for 45th at the Farmers Insurance Open.
