Rory McIlroy Continues Struggles in Performance

Rory McIlroy continues struggles

Rory McIlroy continues struggles with his performance as the TOUR events press on. COVID-19 has presented a slew of changes including the elimination of fans from all TOUR events. It is highly possible that lacking the energy of fans could be affecting the McIlroy’s game. The presence of spectators have been a regular occurrence for big stars and without this, this could be a damper on McIlroy’s game

Rory McIlory continues struggles in latest events sans fans

Before the lockdown, the former World No. 1 was on top of his game with and boasted an impressive track record, but ever since the game returned to action his form has been lackluster and very uncharacteristic of McIlroy. The 31-year-old golf legend has posted finishes of T32, T41, T11, T32 and the most recent game with T47.

Holding at the TPC Harding Park this week will be the first major this year- the PGA Championship. This is a park where Mcllroy has had some accomplishments in previous times, where he won the 2015 Dell Match Play. Ranking currently at World No. 3, McIlroy could use a huge confidence booster this week, considering the last time he won a major was nearly six years ago.

However, Mcllroy is confident that his game is picking up the pace, and hopefully fans will be seeing the powerhouse that they all know and love show their worth on the green.

McIlroy comments on his current game struggles

“Before the shutdown, I was on top of my game, but since the restart of the game, a lot of things have changed, and everything seems to be different in the competitive area.”

I think even with the post-Covid have had some good score on the course,” said Mcllroy. “At the colonial, I shot a 63 alongside a 65 at Hilton Head, followed by a 63 at the Travelers and some good points at Memphis. So, I think overall that the stuff hasn’t been that bad.”

“Even with the Mediocre scores that I have had in previous weeks on the game’s return, I have come off the golf course thinking that my play hasn’t been that terrible during rounds. I believe that if I keep up the game with this pace bring in a bit more efficiency I will be right where I need to be especially with this being the first major in over a year, it would be good to pick up the form and give it a good run.”

While Rory McIlroy continues with struggles on the green, Justin Thomas has made some impressive moves.

Against all the odds, Thomas came to the front line to claim his 13th PGA TOUR title, making him the third-youngest player to achieve this after the iconic Jack Nicklaus, who won 13 PGA TOUR titles at age 25 and Tiger Woods, who did it at age 23.

It was an incredible game for Thomas during the rounds. Brooks Koepka, is defending champion at the time, and tries his best to put up a dogged defense for the title. However, mistakes happen at the par-5 16th, and he hands the victory to Thomas, who claims a whopping $455,000.
