Augusta National chairman Fred Ridley announced
last week that the 2020 tournament scheduled for April 9-12 had
been postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak, citing October
as a possible target date.
"It gives us some room for maneuvering, depending on what
happens over the next few weeks," McIlroy told SiriusXM PGA Tour
Radio on Thursday. "A Masters in the fall, October time, I think
it would be pretty cool. It would be a very different look than
what you usually see at Augusta."
McIlroy, 30, is a four-time major winner, but is still looking
for his first victory at the Masters. His best finish was fourth
place in 2015.
"I think it's definitely a possibility if they want to get the
2020 Masters in, I think that could definitely be a possibility.
I'm sure they can make it happen if they want it to happen,"
"I like to think that we can get a handle on this over the next
sort of couple of months, and things can return to some sort of
normality. But I don't think anyone knows, really."
