Rory McIlroy and 17 other top golfers are in Thousand Oaks, Calif. for the 2013 Northwestern Mutual World Challenge, which takes place between Thursday, Dec. 5 and Sunday, Dec. 8 at the Sherwood Country Club.
Tiger Woods is hosting the tournament, and the five-time winner will also be competing, along with last year's champ Graeme McDowell, rookie sensation Jordan Spieth, PGA Championship winner Jason Dufner, Australian Jason Day, 2012's Masters winner Bubba Watson and others.
After a disappointing 2013 campaign in which nary a single victory was earned, McIlroy got his 2014 season started on a good note, finishing in sixth place at the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions in November. He then outlasted Adam Scott to win the Australian Open last weekend.
McIlroy has appeared at this tournament only once before, back in 2010 when he finished in fourth place.
So, how did he do this year? Keep reading to find out.
