Northern Irishman Rory McIlroy has revealed his intentions to land a career Grand Slam before the age of 30 by winning at Augusta National this year, the Metro report.

McIlroy has claimed the US Open, The Open and the PGA Championship twice during his career and is just missing a green jacket to complete a career Grand Slam.

The 29-year-old’s best finish at Augusta National came back in 2015, where he finished fourth.

However, McIlroy has been consistent at the Masters and has finished in the top 10 in his last five appearances.

And talking on the Golf Channel’s Morning Drive, McIlroy outlined how he is planning to claim his maiden Masters’ title.

It’s all about putting myself in a position to win on the back nine on Sunday, and that’s all I’m thinking about.

Just giving myself another chance and see how I handle it. I’m positive it’ll happen one day. If I keep practicing and working hard and doing the right things, it’ll go my way.

McIlroy then went on to add how he isn’t too stressed about completing the career Grand Slam.

Obviously, I would love to be able to complete the Grand Slam before I’m 30 years of age, but you look at some of the greats in the game and they didn’t start winning majors until their early or mid-30s. So I’ve got time.

At the same time, I feel like I’m at a place where I am very comfortable with my game right now. I’m doing everything that I think I should be doing.

The tournament doesn’t get underway until April 11, with American Patrick Reed set to defend his title.
