March: McIlroy's win at the Honda Classic shot him to world No.1 for the first time. McIlroy said: "It's very special. When I was 10 or 11 I was interviewed and said I wanted to be the best player in the world." Justin Rose then won the WGC-Cadillac Championship, edging out Bubba Watson by a stroke. At the Arnold Palmer Invitational, Tiger Woods recorded his first victory for three years.
