Rory McIlroy will begin this year’s Masters with the same partner that he ended with when he struggled in last year’s event.
McIlroy was paired with Angel Cabrera for the opening two rounds of the event. Cabrera was McIlroy’s partner when he shot an 80 in the final round of last year’s event.

Rory McIlroy insisted otherwise, and you have to give him his due because so far in his young career...
The Masters tees off tomorrow, with all eyes sure to be on Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy, and Phil Mickelson, the three favorites heading into this year’s event.
Sports fans and CBS executives everywhere are salivating at the thought of those three, or at least two of them, being in contention atop the leaderboard on Sunday.

It is mere days before the ceremonial tee shot is hit and the first major golf tournament of the season begins, and it couldn’t be coming at a better time. Tiger Woods has won again, Rory McIlroy and Luke Donald are battling for the No. 1 ranking, Phil Mickelson is rounding into form and the
This could be old news to everyone, but that doesn’t make it any less amazing. Apparently they keep it old school at Augusta National — even during the year’s most celebrated golf event.
