McIlroy feeling a little frustrated

Rory McIlroy is feeling a frustrated after his poor showing at The Barclays this past weekend.

The Northern Irishman finished tied for 22nd, nine shots behind winner Hunter Mahan. He struggled from the opening round, where he carded a two over 74 and while he bounced back with a superb 65 on Friday, two rounds of 70 would not be enough to get him near the top of the leaderboard.

“I’m coming away from this tournament a little frustrated,” revealed the 25-year-old on sportal.com.au.

“I feel I’ve played played better than what the score and the result suggested. I struggled on the greens this week compared to the previous weeks. That was the big difference.

“I was converting those 10-15 feet birdie opportunities the last few weeks and I just didn’t do that this week. That’s the reason I wasn’t able to make as many birdies.”

McIlroy was on a dream run arriving at Ridgewood Country Club, having won The Open, WGC-Bridgestone and US PGA Championships in three weeks.

“It was going to come to an end sooner or later,” added the four time Major winner.

“The great thing about golf is that there’s always next week. I’m looking forward to going to Boston [for the Deutsche Bank Championship], where I’ve had success before. I’ve played well there.

“I feel like my game is in good shape so there’s no reason why I can’t go there next week and challenge for the title there.”
