Rory McIlroy will be determined to clinch an elusive Masters Tournament title at Augusta National Golf Club.
The Northern Irish superstar is considered to be one of the best golfers in the world having won four golf major tournaments. 
McIlroy won the 2011 U.S Open, 2012 PGA Championship, 2014 Open Championship, and 2014 PGA Championship.
However, the 31-year-old has found it difficult to win the Masters Tournament and it is the only golf major title missing on his trophy cabinet.
McIlroy's best performance in the Masters' Tournament came in 2015 as he finished fourth with Jordan Spieth winning the title.
The former world number one was 3 over par and around the cut line after the tournament's first 27 holes, but shot 5-under 31 on the second nine Friday to avoid an early exit.
McIlroy was 15 under on his final 45 holes to finish fourth and he was six shots behind winner Spieth.
Furthermore, the Holywood-born golfer was seven shots back after the first round and 12 shots off the lead at the halfway point.
McIlroy has admitted that he is struggling to find consistency ahead of the Masters after missing the cut at 2021 The Players Championship.
"I struggled there on the first day, just sort of started to trust myself a little bit and found something in between that first and second round. I played really well from then on in," McIlroy said.
"I certainly have like an idea in my head of the way I want to play that golf course, and I felt like I really made some good strides in November. But if you're not hitting the shots, then it doesn't make any difference. 
"First and foremost I have to be able to hit the shots and get the ball starting on my line and control the flight and control the spin. At the minute I'm struggling to do that, and if you can't do that going to Augusta, you've got no chance."
