Among golfers not named Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy is undoubtedly the most followed player in the world, with his every move on the course monitored around the globe.

So, whenever and wherever he tees it up always attracts attention, with bumper galleries and increased media attention following him more than anyone else on planet golf.

It's a huge year for McIlroy as he chases that elusive fifth Major, and he's started 2024 in superb form, finishing second in the Dubai Invitational before successfully defending his title at the Dubai Desert Classic.

And the Northern Irishman will be a busy man early in the year after being a somewhat surprise name in the Cognizant Classic (the former Honda Classic) at PGA National at the end of February.

He's also confirmed for the Valero Texas Open the week before The Masters and the Irish Open in September.

The elevated Signature Events on the PGA Tour are likely to include McIlroy, although he missed the RBC Heritage last year with it coming the week after The Masters.

McIlroy has also stated that he'll "absolutely play" in the 2024 Scottish Open and try and defend the title he won in stunning style just before The Open Championship in 2023.

But where else will he be playing in 2024?

Paul Higham is a sports journalist with over 20 years of experience in covering most major sporting events for both Sky Sports and BBC Sport. He is currently freelance and covers the golf majors on the BBC Sport website.  Highlights over the years include covering that epic Monday finish in the Ryder Cup at Celtic Manor and watching Rory McIlroy produce one of the most dominant Major wins at the 2011 US Open at Congressional. He also writes betting previews and still feels strangely proud of backing Danny Willett when he won the Masters in 2016 - Willett also praised his putting stroke during a media event before the Open at Hoylake. Favourite interviews he's conducted have been with McIlroy, Paul McGinley, Thomas Bjorn, Rickie Fowler and the enigma that is Victor Dubuisson. A big fan of watching any golf from any tour, sadly he spends more time writing about golf than playing these days with two young children, and as a big fair weather golfer claims playing in shorts is worth at least five shots. Being from Liverpool he loves the likes of Hoylake, Birkdale and the stretch of tracks along England's Golf Coast, but would say his favourite courses played are Kingsbarns and Portrush.
