Hello, I'm Mark Crossfield.
00:01
Welcome to The Waggle.
00:02
Rory McIlroy, Master's week, here are my seven
00:05
predictions around Rory McIlroy at the Master's.
00:09
I'm excited, I'm going.
00:11
What?
00:12
I'm going.
00:13
I'm going.
00:14
(cheering)
00:17
Can't wait. Beyond excited!
00:19
Come on, Rory!
00:21
(light music)
00:26
Rory's three-iron, it's staying in the bag.
00:28
He will not be winging it in any lakes this week.
00:30
If he goes and chucks it in a lake down 15,
00:33
I think the green blazers are gonna look at him
00:35
maybe in a different light.
00:36
His invite might be kind of revoked.
00:39
His three-iron is staying in the bag,
00:41
all 72 holes.
00:42
He hasn't got trump McIlroy three-iron
00:43
recovery services this week.
00:45
He's gonna need it, he's gonna use it.
00:46
Three-iron is staying in.
00:48
Final day, tenth tee, Rory leading,
00:52
he won't go back to the launch three A
00:54
like he did in 2011.
00:56
I didn't even know they'd allow you down the
00:58
left of 10.
00:58
I mean, he went into a position none of us have ever seen.
01:01
I mean, it was an amazing collapse from a young guy,
01:05
who we knew was gonna be as great as he is.
01:07
He's gonna get on 10 this year, leading,
01:10
big high draw, bomb it down there.
01:12
Come on, Rory!
01:13
Big questions around what Bubba's gonna serve
01:15
at the Champion's Dinner this year.
01:17
I think the bigger question is more around,
01:20
do you think Rory actually wants to get in that room?
01:22
Do you reckon he's outside the window,
01:23
just hitting a few shots?
01:25
Just practicing guys! Carry on.
01:28
I want in there. In there!
01:30
Par three tournament this year, Rory will not have
01:33
his girlfriend, a girlfriend.
01:35
Has he even got a girlfriend?
01:37
He doesn't really tell us anymore,
01:38
and I don't blame him after what
01:40
happened with Caroline Wozniacki.
01:42
She carried his bag one year, and probably
01:44
has regretted it ever since.
01:46
So who will be carrying his bag around
01:48
the par three tournament?
01:50
I don't know, maybe his dad?
01:51
Definitely not one of his old managers.
01:54
European golfers excited.
01:55
We've got Rory.
01:56
He's a closer.
01:57
He's a major champion.
01:58
He's going in as a favorite.
01:59
We've got loads of other great players as well.
02:01
We've got Ian Poulter, showing some great form.
02:03
We've got Lee Westwood.
02:05
He's had some great rounds round Augusta,
02:06
he's been close a few times.
02:08
The good thing with those guys is you know
02:10
they're gonna get into position to win,
02:12
they are gonna play some great golf,
02:14
and then they're not gonna win.
02:16
Final day, the Master's, final group.
02:19
Rory's gonna be in it.
02:20
He's gonna be vaulty-vaulty-colored.
02:23
What's that word?
02:25
And he's gonna look smart.
02:27
Vault? What's vault? It's just a made-up word, isn't it?
02:30
When he was contending in 2011,
02:33
and he had his instant down 10,
02:35
you at the pictures now and
02:37
he looked like a little boy, didn't he?
02:39
I mean, he was young, but he looked like a teenager.
02:41
He is now corporate smart.
02:44
One definite that's gonna happen:
02:46
Rory in the final group and he's gonna look
02:49
vaulty-vaulty-smart.
02:51
Rory is going to win the Master's this year.
02:53
He's gonna win that career grand slam.
02:55
He's gonna get up there with Tiger and with Jack.
02:58
Under-25, so by the age of 25, the career grand slam.
03:02
No doubt.
03:03
Come on, Rory, let's have it!
03:05
The very nice people at Golf Digest are so
03:08

03:11
