Rory McIlroy is chasing history tomorrow at the start of the 2016 Masters. With four majors under his belt, the 26-year-old is a Green jacket shy of becoming the sixth golfer to complete the career Grand Slam. Pulling this off, will not be easy.To start off the first Major of 2016, Nike Golf has decided to do something a little different, by providing McIlroy with a custom Nike RZN Tour Platinum golf ball.
The custom Nike RZN golf ball features a green camo Swoosh and “RM5” to the front of the ball. The green is a symbolic Masters color; the “RM5” is McIlroy’s initials and the fifth major championship he’s chasing. While this may seem like a PR stunt on Nike’s part, the custom ball played a special role during McIlroy’s Monday’s practice round, when he used it to ace the par-3 16th hole.
Chalk it up to whatever you want, but if the Rory we know who can dominate shows up tomorrow, he may very well be on his way to completing the Grand Slam.
