Rory McIlroy working on ironing out a "couple of things" in his game

Rory McIlroy is keen to make some small tweaks to his game as he returns to one of his favourite courses this week, Bay Hill.  

The world number eight failed to make a weekend at a tournament for the first time since the 2019 Open at the Genesis two weeks ago and he feels there's a "couple of things" he needs to fix.

McIlroy, who bounced back with a top 10 finish at the WGC Workday last Sunday, is out for his opening round at the Arnold Palmer Invitational this afternoon. It's an event he won in 2018 and where he's been inside the top six on four occasions.

"I'm feeling a little better about it," the Down man said when asked about the current state of his game. "I didn't have a great week at Riviera a couple weeks ago, but then had a bit of a better week last week at the Concession. Still trying to iron out a couple of things that I feel like I can do better.

"But I saw some positive signs last week, so, and always coming back to a course where you've had some good memories and that always helps too when you sort of feel a little bit better about yourself.

"So, yeah, you know, I finished decent last week and hopefully can build on that this week.

"I first played this event back in 2015, which I probably should have played it sooner, but I just never was able to get the chance to or have the chance to. So I said in 2015, when I first played, that I'll try to never miss it again, so I've kept my word, up until this point, I'm back again.

"And it's been a wonderful course for me, I played well here in the past, it's nice to be a past champion and looking forward to another great week here in Orlando."
