Masters 2019: Rory McIlroy’s past mindset hindered him at Augusta, he says

first_img“If you win, you win,” McIlroy told The Guardian. “If you don’t … I think it has taken me a while to get to this point.”I’d love to win it. I’m going out there to try my best. Indifferent maybe sounds wrong but I’m not at the point where it’s a burden to me. Not at all.If the shoe fits …Matching McIlroy.All gold everything.#LiveUnderPar— PGA TOUR (@PGATOUR) March 17, 2019″Over the last couple of years, the only thing I feel has held me back between the golf I’ve played and the golf I want to play is mindset. That’s it. Nothing physical, purely how I’ve approached things mentally.”I have made a good effort this year to treat every week the same. It is never any different; you are playing four rounds, out there trying to win. It is all about perception and meaning.”Augusta only means so much to people because of what they attach to it. The only reason Augusta means so much to me is because of what I attach to it. Masters 2019: Tiger Woods’ outfit revealed, brings back memorable top McIlroy is rejuvenated, having won The Players Championship already this year, and he believes he is now able to take a relaxed approach at the Masters as he will attach no added pressure to his performance.The four-time major winner said earlier this season that there was no longer a “need” to triumph at the historic tournament and, speaking ahead of the event, he reiterated the freedom he will feel chasing the green jacket this year. Related News Rory McIlroy will feel no burden at Augusta National next week, having acknowledged that previous attempts to win the Masters have been hampered by his mental game.The Northern Irishman is returning for an 11th crack at the major as he looks to finally complete golf’s career Grand Slam, potentially becoming just the sixth player to do so. “So if I take some of that away, it is not easy but it can be done. It’s just trying to see things in a bigger picture, taking a step away from this tiny little bubble that is the golf world.”And McIlroy believes he will get another chance to win the Masters even if he cannot deliver this time.”The first time I let it go, in 2011, I didn’t know how many chances I was going to have,” he said. “Now I’m pretty confident I’m going to have more chances to win at Augusta.”last_img read more

Grassley says Sanders’ college debt bill doesn’t accomplish goal

first_imgWASHINGTON — As one of his colleagues proposes wiping out all college debt for 45-million Americans, Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley asks — where will that end? Wipe out all home mortgages?Grassley, a Republican, says the legislation offered by Democrat Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, who’s running for president, is at first glance impractical, and upon closer inspection, contrary to what Sanders is fighting for.“I would be surprised about a very liberal person like Sanders that’s always complaining about the one-percent wealthy, the billionaires,” Grassley says. “This would benefit the rich and middle class the most and not necessarily helping those that he’s trying to help.”Grassley says his own legislation would tackle the problem Sanders is trying to address. Iowa’s senior senator says he met a few years ago with then-University of Iowa president Sally Mason, who detailed how the average U-I student was graduating with $29,000 in debt.“The federal government is encouraging people to get in debt by a law that says you have to tell kids the maximum amount they can borrow, so presumably, they do,” Grassley says. “My ‘Know Before You Owe’ bill would do away with that requirement.” Under that measure, Grassley says students would only be encouraged to borrow what they’d need for tuition, books, fees, and room and board — and not the thousands of dollars more.“There’s a lot of debt that’s freely taken because people choose to do it, people choose to go to college,” Grassley says. “I think we all understand that you probably appreciate a little more your education if you’ve got some skin in the game.”Sanders’ bill, called the College For All Act, would wipe out $1.6 billion in debt. The rationale is, without that debt, college graduates could spend their earnings on other things — like houses — that would stimulate the economy.last_img read more
