Rory McIlroy is in fearsome form as he arrives at Augusta National chasing a rare career Grand Slam, but a renewed Tiger Woods could have something to say about the Northern Ireland star's bid for a breakthrough Masters win. "I don't think I've ever started a season this well in terms of finishes, and even stats wise, looking at all my stats, they are right up there with some of the best years that I've had," said McIlroy, whose seven top-10 finishes in seven starts this year include a victory at the U.S. PGA Tour's prestigious Players Championship in March.He owns top-10 Masters finishes the past four years, including a tie for fifth behind American Patrick Reed last year. With experience at a premium, multiple winners including Woods, Phil Mickelson and Bubba Watson must always be judged a threat.Woods, 43, admits he would never have foreseen the major drought that has followed his 14th major victory at the 2008 U.S. Open.
