wouldn't trade his season for that of world No 1 Brooks Koepka, who defended the US PGA Championship
and finished runner-up at the Masters and US Open.
The Northern Irishman pointed to the fact he's had two wins and 11 top tens — more than any other player.
'I wouldn't trade, no,' said McIlroy.
'I look at Brooks at the majors and think, 'Wow, if he produced that sort of stuff every week, it would be tough to compete'. Why he doesn't I've no idea, but he obviously puts more emphasis on majors.'
McIlroy, who plays in Thursday's Scottish Open, was asked whether he had one eye on the Open next week.
'I'm playing this event with two eyes firmly focused on the Scottish Open,' he said.
