Matching ´ridiculous´ Tiger not on McIlroy´s radar

Rory McIlroy has discounted the possibility of mirroring the stunning spell of form that saw Tiger Woods sweep to 14 majors in 11 years.

The Northern Irishman claimed four between 2011 and 2014, but has now gone four years without one.

However, as the former world number one prepared for this week's Open Championship at Carnoustie, he was minded to point out that any enduring run of major victories should be seen as the exception rather than the rule - with only Woods bucking that trend.

"I've always said that my performances in the majors at that point [from 2011-2014], that wasn't the norm. That wasn't my normal level. That was above my normal level," he said.

"And then you sort of, you go back down, and then you build yourself back up again. But everything finds its balance.

"And even the 14 that Tiger won, that was him at the peak of his powers, and that was him at his 100 percent best. We're not all going to be like that every single time. There's going to be times where you do struggle with this and with that.

"As long as there's points during the year where you can maybe get yourself to that level, then that's great.

"You look at Jordan [Spieth], he's had a nice little run; he's won three in three years. I had a nice one; I won four in four.

"That said, if you continue to do stuff like that, you're going to be one of the greatest of all time, but that's very hard.

"There's only really been one guy that's done it for like a 10-year period where he's won that many, and that was Tiger.

"What he did ... it was 11 years, and he won 14 major championships. I mean, that is pretty ridiculous in anyone's book.

"I'm certainly not expecting to go on that sort of a tear, but as long as I give myself chances and I'm in contention most of the time when I'm playing a major."
