Examples of sixth in a Sentence

  1. Rory McIlroy:

    Does it give people something else to talk about ? Yes, but I'm not necessarily listening to anything that anyone is saying, so doesn't really make a difference to me.' That Rory McIlroy is coming into the Masters with blinders on is little surprise. He's got a chance to become only the sixth player to win a career Grand Slam with a win here, and he's prepared meticulously for his attempt to conquer a course that seems made for his game but has consistently given him fits. He did it mostly out of the tournament spotlight, working on his game the last few weeks near his Florida home.
