Greg Norman's phone call meant the most to McIlroy

April 4, 2012 - Washington

U.S. Open champion Rory McIlroy has said that one phone call from Greg Norman, about the ups and downs of playing the sport of golf, meant the most to him.

Norman told McIlroy of the four good chances that he had in 1996 to slip on a Green Jacket at the Augusta Open, and McIlroy appreciated it.

"I think it was great coming from him because he had sort of been in the same position in 1996 - well, '96 where Faldo won, but I think '86 as well, 1987," The Telegraph quoted McIlroy, as saying.
