McIlroy Uses Texas Open to Get `Sharp' For Augusta 4/4/13
SAN ANTONIO - Rory McIlroy's last-minute, last-ditch effort to right
his game in time for golf's first major of the year at The Masters next week has
taken a trip to a usually out-of-the-way spot on the PGA Tour.
McIlroy and three other highly-ranked players start play in the Valero Texas
Open on Thursday at TPC San Antonio.
Big-name players don't often seek the Greg Norman-designed Oaks Course at
TPC to sharpen their games.
Yet McIlroy's play since he won the PGA Championship in August has dropped
him a spot, from 1 to 2, while Tiger Woods went back to the top.
