ory McIlroy has returned to the man who has taught him since he was a kid, eight months after breaking with longstanding swing coach Michael Bannon to work with Pete Cowen.
McIlroy told Golfweek, “Yes, Michael [Bannon] and I are back working together.” “I’ve always had a good connection with Pete, and I’ll seek his advice if I think it’s necessary.” But it’s just Michael and me now.”
McIlroy felt dissatisfied with his game and swing after Bannon, who is from Northern Ireland, was unable to travel due to the epidemic. He began training with Cowen at The Players Championship in March and had some success.
He won the Wells Fargo Championship for the third time in May, and he won his only start in the fall at the CJ Cup in October, but he has also had problems. McIlroy struggled at the Ryder Cup, missing a team session for the first time in his career and failing to earn a point until the singles session on Sunday. He was also relegated to 15th place in the world rankings.
“It’s quite good. When asked to describe his season at the Tour Championship, McIlroy stated, “Some good, some bad.” “It got off to a good start. Actually, I didn’t do it. I had some good outcomes at the start of the year, but I never felt completely at ease.”
McIlroy’s next race will be the DP World Championship on the European circuit later this month, followed by the Hero World Challenge in December.
