Woods is currently on a break from the sport following a series of injuries as well as a decline in his game.
Here is what Rory Mcllroy had to say when he was asked about him being comfortable as the the sports main star.
Asked whether he was comfortable being the main star of the sport, McIlroy was emphatic in his response.
"Yes. Because it's what I've always wanted to do. I would be wasting my time if I was out there practicing as much as I do and putting as much into it if I didn't want to be in this position, and wasting the people's time around me, as well, that helped me get to this point," the golfer said.
"Of course I want to be that guy. I said it last year, golf is waiting for someone like that to step forward, put their hand up and win the big tournaments.
"Yeah, this is the position I want to be in and I want to be in it as long as I can."
This year Rory Mcllroy will be looking at increasing his 9 PGA Tour wins and most importantly Augusta where the golfer has only managed just one top finish in six attempts.
