Rory Mcilroy is in great form and seems to want to continue at the same pace in Wentworth at the BMW PGA Championship. He is aware that this will be an ideal chance for him. "It's nice to be back [at Wentworth]," McIlroy said for skysports.
"Even though I won this tournament in May (2014), I've enjoyed it more in September and I think the golf course plays sort of a little better for me. I'm on a little run here with Italy [Italian Open] next week and the Dunhill [Alfred Dunhill Links Championship] a little bit after that.
It's nice to get back on European soil and play a few." Europe is the ground on which he has not played for a long time, but his good form is an indication that he could achieve great success. "I've been close before [to topping the standings on both Tours] and haven't quite gotten over the line, so that's something that I want to do.
I haven't played as much in Europe as I did before [winning in 2015] that but I'm No 1 in the points list. I have a good chance, so I want to try to make the most of it. I think it would be a really cool double to do."
Matt Fitzpatrick on Wentworth
Matt Fitzpatrick is excited about the opportunity at Wentworth and wants a good result.
"I know that the premium is on tee to green this week," said Fitzpatrick. "You have to hit your irons well, number one, and driver is second. If I can put myself in position off the tee, have less club in than I have had in previous years, that's obviously an advantage.
Greens being soft also makes it a little easier. So it's going to be interesting to see how it plays out. I definitely don't feel like I played it this soft, maybe ever before."
