Rory McIlroy Will Win ‘More Than One’ Of Golf’s Grand Slam Predicts Lee Trevino … See The Video.

Golfing legend Lee Trevino predicts Rory McIlroy will win not one, but two golfing Grand Slam’s in his career.

“Rory will have no problem winning a career Grand Slam, and as a matter of fact, I think he will a career Grand Slam more than once,” said Trevino.

“And I will go out on a limb and say that at the moment.”

Trevino, who captured six Majors in his illustrious career, was making the comment at this week’s PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando.

However of those six Majors, including two U.S. Open’s, two Open Championship’s and two PGA Championships, Trevino never won the Masters

The 26-year old McIlroy is already three-quarters of the way to a first Grand Slam and will attempt to win a first Masters starting at Augusta National on April 7th where a year ago his quest for a first Grand Slam saw him finish T4th behind American Jordan Spieth.

He had four major victories: one U.S. Open (2011), one Open Championship (2014) and two PGA Championships (2012, ’14). He finished a career-best fourth last year at Augusta National.


He made his Augusta National debut in 1968 and secured a best finish of T10t in both 1975 and 1985 with his last Masters appearance in 1991.

“McIlroy has something I didn’t have when I played Augusta,” said Trevino.

“First of all, he hits the ball extremely long and he hits it high, and he draws the ball from right to left.

“It’s no secret that Augusta has to be played from right to left, and it’s also no secret the last five or six Masters have been won by left-handers because a fade is much easier to hit than a draw.

“The left-handers fade the ball at Augusta which is a draw for a right-handed guy and that makes it easier for them.

“That’s why Bubba hits wedge to 13 or 9-iron into 15 as they cut the ball down there.

“So no, McIlroy will have no problem winning a Grand Slam, and odds on he does it this year.”
