His 23-year-old Danish fiancee Caroline Wozniacki turned heads at the Augusta course when she turned up with a new shocking pink hairdo as she accompanied her boyfriend around the course in pink runners and white caddie's overalls.

The tennis player is taking a break from her hectic schedule and wedding planning to support him in what may be the biggest weekend of his career.

The 24-year-old is hoping to clinch a Masters title and silence the critics after his widely reported meltdown in the final round of the competition in 2011.

With Tiger Woods out of this weekend's competition, McIlroy is the favourite to win, and he admitted earlier this weekend that he is "excited".

McIlroy finished in 25th place last year, and has been on good form all year.
