World No 1 Rory McIlroy is targeting his fourth win in Boston this week, hoping to knock Hunter Mahan off the top spot and regain his lead in the PGA Tour play-offs.
American Mahan clinched last week’s opening FedEx Cup event, but McIlroy won on the Boston course two years ago and beleives he can do it again.
“My golf game feels probably a little more in control now than it did back then,” said the 25-year-old.
“Certain shots that I’m able to hit now that I maybe wasn’t able to hit back then. And I’m definitely driving the ball as good as I ever have, if not better.”
This season the young Irishman won at Wentworth in May, triumphed in the British Open and clinched the WGC Bridgestone Invitational and US PGA Championship titles.
