McIlroy eyes two more majors victories in 2015


The career Grand Slam may have eluded Rory McIlroy this year, but the Ulsterman still has his sights set on adding to his major haul.

McIlroy is in England this week to defend his title at the BMW PGA Championship, a victory that sparked a run of seven worldwide wins in the last 12 months. That tally includes a seven-shot win last week at Quail Hollow and it also includes a pair of major titles - a feat McIlroy hopes to repeat this summer.

"There's three majors left and I feel like two of those major venues are going to set up really well with me, at St. Andrews and Whistling Straits," McIlroy told Sky Sports.

The confidence isn't surprising considering McIlroy's current form and his past success at both venues. He tied for third at the 2010 Open Championship at St. Andrews, where he opened with a 63 and rallied after a second-round 80. He also finished T-3 at the 2010 PGA Championship at Whistling Straits, one shot out of a playoff between Bubba Watson and Martin Kaymer.

The next major on the calendar, though, is the U.S. Open, where an untested venue has dampened his expectations - for now.

"Chambers Bay is a bit of an unknown at the U.S. Open in a few weeks, so (I've) got two great opportunities to add to the major tally," he said. "Got a lot of other great opportunities just to get more wins, and even try to increase my lead in the world ranking. There's a lot to play for this year."
