Rory McIlroy feels he is in the best shape possible as he attempts to win the Masters and complete the career grand slam.

"I feel as prepared as I ever have and I'm excited to hit that first tee shot on Thursday afternoon," McIlroy, who ended an 18-month winless streak with victory in the Arnold Palmer Invitational last month, said.

"I could not come here in better form and hopefully I can carry that into the next three days. I play well here and have just not played well enough.

"Hopefully this is my week and I can get myself in there and grab it with both hands."
