With uncertainty over the rest of the 2020 golf calendar, Rory McIlroy says he's open to the idea of playing The Masters at Augusta in October.
Augusta chairman Fred Ridley confirmed last Friday that the first major of the year was to be postponed due to COVID-19 pandemic and the course is due to be closed this summer.
The US PGA Championship was also pushed back this week and it's possible that both tournaments may need to be rescheduled after the Ryder Cup in September.
"It gives us some room for manoeuvring, depending on what happens over the next few weeks," McIlroy told SiriusXM PGA Tour Radio. "A Masters in the fall, October time, I think it would be pretty cool. It would be a very different look than what you usually see at Augusta.
"I think it's definitely a possibility if they want to get the 2020 Masters in, I think that could definitely be a possibility. I'm sure they can make it happen if they want it to happen.
"I like to think that we can get a handle on this over the next sort of couple of months, and things can return to some sort of normality," McIlroy said. "But I don't think anyone knows, really."
The world number one has also revealed that he held discussions with Brooks Koepka before deciding to rule out joining the proposed Golf Premier League:
"There were discussions that were had. Brooks did call me a couple of weeks ago, and just wanted to sort of get my thoughts on it.
"Golf shouldn't be about just 48 players. I think one of the great things about golf is the fact that there are these storylines of the underdog.
"The fact that anyone can really qualify for the US Open, and have a great tournament and have a chance to win. Those are the wonderful things about golf."
