Tiger Woods will not be teeing it up in the 2014 Masters. That just sounds weird. Regardless, golfers like Rory McIlroy will still be part of the field. This is McIlroy’s chance to take the golf world by storm once again and to prove that he is one of the top players in the world.

McIlroy is definitely capable of winning the green jacket this weekend. Read on to see five reasons why he will win the Masters.

Redemption From Last Season

Last season, McIlroy received a huge contract from Nike, he was the No. 1 golfer in the world and he was set to have a monster year. Well, he didn’t. It is time for McIlroy to get some redemption and it all starts at the Masters.

McIlroy hasn’t won a tournament this year, but he is still having a decent season. He has finished in the top 10 three times on the PGA Tour and two times on the European Tour. Plus, he finished in seventh place at the Shell Houston Open last week.

Rory McIlroy has never won the Masters. Some people may think this is a disadvantage, but I am looking at the glass half full here.

McIlroy is hungry for a Masters. He has played here before and he knows what he needs to do to score at Augusta.

McIlroy didn’t receive a huge contract from Nike for no reason. He is arguably the most talented golfer in the world. Tiger Woods may have the records, but we have not seen McIlroy completely meet expectations yet. Hopefully we will.

Whether the case, when McIlroy is on his game, he is the best player in the world. Woods would probably say otherwise, but he is also not playing this weekend.

Once again, Tiger Woods is not in the field this weekend. I am not sure if Woods intimidates McIlroy or what, but he won’t have to worry about the No. 1 golfer playing at the 2014 Masters.

Woods has lost a step or two, but he still has that intimidation factor and despite the fact that he has not won a major in what seems like forever, he is still No. 1 in the World Rankings.
