Heading into his debut on the PGA Tour at this week’s Honda Classic, Rory McIlroy is atop of the golfing world, holding a firm grasp on the no. 1 spot in the world rankings for over a year.
He’s starting his year in America without any outside distractions, whether it may be legal or personal. He’s already won once in 2015, capturing the Omega Dubai Desert Classic earlier this month in his second start on the European Tour. (He finished second in his season opener at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship in January.)
