Rory McIlroy was not pleased a wee bit after failing to make it to the cut for the second time in this year’s golfing season.
He felt that his performance in the ongoing US PGA majors in New Jersey was pathetic and needs to visit the drawing board in order to get rid of his poor form at the majors. This is a happy sign for all Rory fans as the golfer is determined to get back his good from and perform well in the majors.
Even after missing to make a single birdie on his opening 74, McIlroy stuck to his task and concentrated hard to reach the last home where a par could have extended his tournament. But, unfortunately he failed miserably at the 18th.
McIlroy, world number 4 player, has decided that he needs to rethink his game and strategy. He has made up his mind to get back into the drawing board and make a few changes in his game that will help him to play better. It is not that his performance was very bad at the US PGA championships, but luck deserted him at the 18th.
Rory said that he will be taking two weeks off the game and will practice for a week before he competes in the Barclays event. He feels that taking time off from the busy golfing schedule could put him back in a good frame of mind after 2 weeks. Rory confirmed that he will sit and reassess the current playing mood he is in and will seriously do something to play at his best at Barclays.
McIlroy is looking to come out with a better idea of playing on the greens. He knows that putting is what is letting him down and wants to rectify it. He is happy with the way he is driving the ball.
