McIlroy lashes out at golf tech aiding players

Rory McIlroy will have raised hackles amongst his fellow major winners, with his claim that improved technology has meant "lesser players" have been able to win major championships in recent times.

Of the last 16 majors there have been 16 different winners, an amazing display of inconsistency since the Tiger Woods period of dominance.

"I think one of the big things is the technology," McIlroy said. "I think 25 years ago you had the really good players that could play with basically anything and nowadays the technology lets maybe some of the lesser players catch up with the better players.

And I think that's why you see so many more guys winning these days."

With the last major, the PGA Championship, due to take place this week McIlroy will hope to improve on his dismal performances on the big stage since his 2011 US Open victory.

"I've hopefully got 25 more years to try and win major championships," he added.

"I'm disappointed that I have not contended since. That's been the disappointing thing. I haven't given myself even a chance. I was in a good position at the Masters going into Saturday, shot a bad third round there and sort of blew myself out of contention.

It would be great just to give myself a chance this week, get into contention and just feel that buzz again of getting into contention in a major and remembering how it feels." The past 16 majors have produced 16 different winners
