Graeme McDowell has tipped Rory McIlroy to become a stronger golfer and to win multiple Majors after his Masters meltdown 10 days ago.
McIlroy put the disappointment of Augusta behind him to finish third in the Maybank Malaysian Open, although he once again let a final-round lead slip leading to further question about is ability to putt under pressure.
McDowell, however, is in no doubt that the 21-year-old will recover and stands by his prediction that his compatriot will win numerous majors before the end of his career. 
"I think he is an unbelievably talented kid and at the minute he is just learning how to win," McDowell told Irish Golf Desk.
BEST BUDDIES:  McIroy and McDowell
"If he keeps putting himself up there, he will win. We've all seen Tiger Woods but this Rory McIlroy kid is one of the best players I have ever seen.
"It is all a learning experience and it will stand him in great stead for the future. All the greats say you have got to throw a few away before you learn how to win one. I said at the start of Masters week that Augusta is absolutely tailor made for him and I stand by that.
HIGH PRAISE: US Open Champion McDowell reckons Rory'll go all the way
"He will not just win one Masters, he will win multiple Masters. And I will say that right now."
Despite his failure to win in Kuala Lumpur, McDowell believes the young golfer showed brilliant resilience to bounce back and he is confident the disappointments will stand to him in the future.
