McIlroy has “unfinished business”

Rory McIlroy is looking forward to getting back to Augusta and righting the wrongs of earlier this year.

The 22-year-old is currently taking part in the Grand Slam of Golf in Bermuda, which features the winners of this year’s majors, and is well placed to pick up a win – but he’s already looking ahead to next year’s Masters.

McIlroy grabbed all the right kind of headlines in the opening three days at Augusta, moving out to a four-shot lead heading into Sunday’s final round, but that was to be the end of his good times.

The Northern Irishman imploded in rather spectacular fashion during the last round, carding a miserable 80 that saw him lose out to eventual winner Charl Schwartzel. In fact, he ended up finishing outside the top 10 in 15th place.

McIlroy is clearly eager to get back to the site of his dramatic collapse and exorcise the demons.

“I had a great chance to win the Masters this year and didn’t quite grab it,” he said.

“Charl played some great golf to shoot 66 and birdie the final four holes to win it, but I feel I’ve got some unfinished business there.”

The US Open champion is currently tied at the top in Bermuda alongside US PGA winner Keegan Bradley in the 36-hole event with one round left to play.
