Rory McIlroy, the Irish golfer, wakes up at 5.30 am for breakfast.
After an hour, he is out running. Followed by yet another breakfast at 7.30. By it is 9 o’clock, he hits the course before a position of lunch at noon. After an hour-and-a-half, he is back at the tee box for yet another 3-and-a-half hours drill before he could polish off a mid-afternoon snack. McIlroy’s main gym workout starts at 4.45 pm. He takes dinner at 6.30 pm and by 10 pm, it is light out, bed time.
McIlroy believes that this strict routine will bring him that elusive Green Jacket next Sunday at Augusta. The Masters starts on Thursday and the twenty-six year old world number three is quite confident that he would be in the run to win the year’s first major.
With 2 PGA Championships, 1 Open title as well as a US Open already to his kitty, the Northern Irishman is more than desperate to beat the players like Jordan Spieth and Jason Day to golf’s top prize and battles his grand slam major set.
Rory believes that his precise preparation would serve him get an edge of his rivals. If you do not really love the work you have to put in to become the best then you might want to consider a different line of work or sport of choice.
He believes that the common denominator among each great athlete, no matter the sport, is they love the pursuit to improve. They devote themselves more and that is the main reason they are better.
