What do you get when you combine golf season, and Irish no.1 and his newfound fitness regime into one? All the talk in the golfing world as the Masters' approaches has been about Rory McIlroy. It doesn't help that he is the current holder of two majors, and will be looking to complete the only one that has eluded him so far when he tees it up at Augusta next Thursday.
The public wants a piece of Rory, the players want to chase him down, and the media want a piece of the world no.1. It's hard not to notice the new shape that McIlroy has sculpted of his body in his professional career.
