Rory McIlroy has sought to make Augusta National like his “home golf course” during frequent practice sessions as he seeks his first Masters title.

The 27-year-old Northern Irishman has played 99 practice holes so far, with nine more to come on Wednesday.

“It’s been a quiet build-up compared to previous years and I haven’t minded that – it’s been quite nice,” he said.
