OPENING SHOT

Professional opinion, at Golf Channel at least, is Rory McIlroy is lost in the abyss. David Duval thinks Tiger Woods has a much better chance of winning a major this year. Brandel Chamblee says McIlroy is as far from greatness as he has ever been in his career. Without any viable injury excuses this year, Rory risks being stricken from the short list of best players in the game. A T-32 finish, or similar, at Augusta, and the questions will come in earnest.
