Truth & Rumors: Norman says McIlroy is most likely to break Jack's record
In September, Norman said Tiger Woods was intimidated by Rory McIlroy and that Tiger "really can't keep up with Rory." This week, Norman said McIlroy has a better chance of getting to 19 majors than Woods.
According to a report by Australian Golf Digest, Norman spoke out after the pro-am at the Australian PGA Championship:
"I think if anybody can break Nicklaus's record I think he could, because he is young, he is ahead of the game, he is ahead of the curve on a lot of things and he has a very balanced life across the board," Norman said.
"So I will keep my fingers crossed for him 'cause I would love to see that happen because somebody will do it one day and it could be Rory.
"I am a big fan of Rory's, I think he's really the tip of the iceberg. He can be as big as he wants to be."
