McIlroy looking to keep momentum to the Masters

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. (AP) Rory McIlroy is on a roll, and he wants to keep it that way.

McIlroy is making his PGA Tour season debut this week at the Honda Classic. It's the first time in five months that the world's No. 1 player has competed on American soil, even though this feels like a home game because he lives in south Florida. He won the Honda Classic in 2012 and lost in a playoff last year.

But for McIlroy, this is all about his road to the Masters.

A winner of two majors last year, McIlroy will have a chance to become only the sixth player to capture the career Grand Slam. McIlroy says he's only paying attention now to playing well at the Honda Classic, followed by Doral and Bay Hill.
