Tiger Woods’ former coach Butch Harmon has become Rory McIlroy’s latest mentor as he looks to make a successful comeback to the PGA Tour. McIlroy, currently ranked number two in the world, is determined to win all four men’s championships and become only the sixth player in history to do so.

Despite having worked with his long-term coach Michael Bannon and Pete Cowen in the past, McIlroy recently sought out Harmon’s help after struggling with his game this season. With just one top-20 finish on the PGA Tour, McIlroy realized that he needed some expert guidance to fine-tune his game ahead of his next major tournament.

Harmon, 80, was once Woods’ coach during his first eight major wins before parting ways in 2002. Now, he has set his sights on helping McIlroy achieve similar success at Augusta National. During their recent golf lesson, McIlroy shared a heartwarming moment with his daughter Poppy when she asked why her father needed another golf lesson. Her innocent curiosity prompted McIlroy to reflect on the importance of continuous learning and improvement in sports.

Harmon has a distinguished track record as a coach, having guided Phil Mickelson, Dustin Johnson and Greg Norman to major victories. With the upcoming Masters tournament just around the corner, McIlroy is hopeful that Harmon’s expertise will help him break through and finally win at Augusta National.
