Rory McIlory will be confident of winning the Hero World Challenge for the first time when he takes part in the tournament. 
Currently placed eighth in the Official World Golf Rankings, the Northern Irish superstar is coming into the event as one of the favourites to win it.
McIlory is a four-time major champion, winning the 2011 US Open, 2012 PGA Championship, 2014 Open Championship, and 2014 PGA Championship.

The Florida-based golfer started 2021 by winning the Wells Fargo Championship at Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, North Carolina by one stroke in May. 
In October, McIlroy, who is a former world number one in the Official World Golf Ranking, won the CJ Cup at The Summit Club in Las Vegas, Nevada by one stroke.
This was his 20th PGA Tour victory, gaining him life membership and he became only the sixth player to reach 20 wins on the tour before their 33rd birthday since 1960.
Two weeks ago, McIlroy held the 54-hole lead at the DP World Tour Championship, Dubai, but he finished five shots behind winner Collin Morikawa.

“I’ve never really cried or cared about what I’ve done as an individual; I couldn’t give a [bleep],” McIlroy said after he ripped his golf shirt following a disappointing final round at the DP World Tour Championship.
“I love being a part of this team. I love my teammates so much and I should have done more for them this week.
“I just can’t wait to get another shot at this. It is by far the best experience in golf and I hope there are boys and girls watching this today who aspire to play in this event or the Solheim Cup," he continued.
"No matter what happens later, I am proud of every single player, I’m proud of the captain and vice captains,” he said.
