"I'd like to see Rory do it this year," said Perlini after practice on Monday. "(McIlroy) would probably complete the career Grand Slam. It would be nice to see him do it."

Perlini has his eye on Tiger and Phil along with a number of European golfers. He was raised outside London and drafted by the Coyotes in 2014.

"I always watch the European tour," said Perlini. "We've got guys like Thomas Pieters coming up. He bombs it a mile. It would be good to see the Euros do it."

Perlini is in a competition with rookie Clayton Keller to have the lowest handicap on the team.

"He's got a good short game," said Perlini. "He looks like Rickie Fowler. He always wears the flat brim too."
