Rory McIlroy has given his season a score out of 10 ahead of competing in his final event of the year at the DP World Tour Championship in Dubai.
That puts him just one Order of Merit title away from late great Seve Ballesteros and three off the all-time record set by Colin Montgomerie.
McIlroy has now twice successfully defended the Race to Dubai having also done it in 2015.
He won his first in 2012.
Here are five things we already know about the exciting TaylorMade Qi10 LS Driver ahead of its official launch in early 2024.
Speaking to the media ahead of his final event of the year and McIlroy was pressed on his overall season the past 12 months.
It was a season that brought two victories at the Dubai Desert Classic and Scottish Open, the latter of which is a co-sanctioned event on the PGA Tour.
There was disappointment with a MC at The Masters, the final major he so desperately wants to win in order to complete the career grand slam, but McIlroy did go on to finish in the top 10 in the next three majors.
In total, McIlroy had 13 top-10 finishes in 2023 on the PGA Tour and DP World Tour.
McIlroy also performedly admirably at the Ryder Cup when becoming the top points scorer (taking 4 points from 5) en route to helping Luke Donald's Europe regain the famous trophy at Marco Simone in Rome.
So with all that in mind, what would McIlroy score his 2023 season out of 10?
McIlroy told the media in Dubai:
He does have one big regret though.
