"I feel like there's nothing in my way", McIlroy said.

'I will have played a lot of tournament golf leading up to it.

"It's a tournament that I've always watched and I've always thought one day it would be really cool to play with my dad, and fortunately we were able to get him in and play", McIlroy said.

"What goes through my head is I still believe that most of the guys that sit on this stage right here, you ask them who do they want putting on your team in a Ryder Cup, and I believe they would say my name - so I have no doubt in my abilities", Spieth said.

"And, yeah, I think I have a great window of opportunity over the next 10, 12 years to play great golf and to leave my mark on the game, I guess".

Dustin Johnson fired a seven-under 64 to climb into a share of the Pebble Beach Pro-Am lead after the second round.

However, when Day's comment about McIlroy's desire was put to the Holywood man during his pre-tournament press conference, the 28-year-old responded brushed off any suggestions that his enthusiasm has been dimmed by a winless 2017 during which his progress was hampered by injury and inconsistency.

"I was just sort of ready to call it quits for the year after the Dunhill", he said.

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is hitting the links this week at the Pebble Beach Pro-Am in Monterey, California. If he could come back in another life, would he rather be Gerry McIlroy or Rory McIlroy? Because if it can happen to one of the world's best, there's no hope for the rest of us.

Johnson's game is built around his driving prowess, ranking first in SG: off-the-tee (gaining 2.225 strokes over the field) and first in SG: total.

Under par for the day and within four shots of the lead after beginning on the back nine, McIlroy nearly drove the green with his tee shot and finished just short of the front edge. McIlroy has ramped up his schedule ahead of Augusta National, with six tournaments on his schedule between now and then. The firm and fast conditions coupled with his distance will make him a tough player to beat this week. Winning would be even better.
