McIlroy hoping win kick starts summer
Rory McIlroy believes his thrilling win at the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open on Sunday will provide a much-needed boost.
The Northern Irishman claimed his first win of the year when he played the final three holes in three-under at the K Club.
In March, McIlroy was in a winning position at the WGC-Cadillac Championship but failed to capitalise. That makes Sunday's wins all the sweeter.
"It means a lot for my summer," quipped the 27-year-old on Sky Sports.
"It's nice to get that first win of the year. I kept telling myself, kept telling anyone that would listen, my game was close.
"It was just a matter of everything clicking. Maybe those last three holes is the catalyst for another big summer."
McIlroy cited the confidence boosting win as a sign that his game is good enough to challenge at the upcoming majors, the next of which is the US Open which tees off at at Oakmont Country Club on 16 June.
The four-time major winner also highlighted his busy schedule for the latter half of the year.
"I really feel like my game is in good enough shape to kick on from here and to challenge in the three final majors, and obviously, everything else we have to play for this year, Olympics, Ryder Cup, Race to Dubai, FedEx Cup."
