Rory McIlroy will play the Masters with a custom, Augusta-themed Nike Golf Ball

At the 2016 Masters, Rory McIlroy is chasing a fifth career major title and is looking to become just the sixth player in history to complete the career Grand Slam.

He's changed his approach this week, eschewing a pre-tournament scouting trip, avoiding the Par-3 Contest, keeping it as laid back as possible -- all in addition to changing his putting grip to left-hand-low earlier in the year.

McIlroy will also have a different Nike Golf ball in play this week, sort of.

As reported by PGATour.com, the Ulsterman will be playing with a Nike Golf RZN Tour Platinum ball this week with custom graphics, with an Augusta National-inspired Swoosh and the alphanumeric phrase "RM5" on it -- meaning McIlroy's fifth major title in waiting.

McIlroy enjoyed his best-ever Masters finish in 2015, finishing fourth to Jordan Spieth after playing the final 45 holes of the championship in 15 under par.

THAT WAS FUN, RIGHT?!
