Rory McIlroy: I don't care about The Open, the Masters is biggest

Rory McIlroy

"It was nice to make four there, I wish I would have made a three on the eighth hole, had a good chance there, but you know, 68 is still a good score". "I sort of was trying to say if you look at where the U.S. Open and the Open were compared to the Masters 50 years ago, they were bigger golf tournaments", he said.

McIlroy's fellow Northern Irishman Graeme McDowell tees off at 6pm BST while Tiger Woods also plays his first tournament since the Masters, teeing off at 5.50pm BST. With AP Photos.Tyrrell Hatton did much better at Quail Hollow as a PGA Tour event than he did on the course that hosted the PGA Championship last summer.

The Offaly golfer carded a bogey and a birdie to turn in level-par 35, but a hat-trick of dropped shots from the 11th pushed him out to three over.He birdied the 14th but also finished with a bogey as he signed for a three-over 74. I was hitting it left and thought it was because I was getting underneath it.

"Once I got back into my routine I was fine".

If there was one disappointment for McIlroy it was perhaps that he didn't capitalise fully on a positive start that saw him pick up three shots in his first six holes.

According to the Post , Rhodes issued a memo in March that said he was not aware of harassment by Charlie Rose at CBS . Rose responded to the new allegations with a one-sentence email to the Post: "Your story is unfair and inaccurate".

"I went back home and sort of decompressed, binge watched a couple of shows, read a couple of books, drank a few bottles of wine", McIlroy said, before adding, "No, I don't mean like that".

Patrick Reed's life changed last month at Augusta National Golf Club, where he captured the coveted green jacket and won his first career major championship. But it got to the point where [his wife] Erica had to drag me out of the house and say, 'OK, we're going to go do something'. "For me, it's about being able to go and use the champions' locker room and all the other cool stuff that comes along with it".

"I'm a very proud victor of both of those majors".

After missing out on the elusive win at the 2018 Masters McIlroy admitted that he found the experience hard to process. I play that golf course well enough, I've five top 10s [finishes] in a row. "I wasn't trying to be disrespectful at all". I truly believe it'll happen.

The former world number one is bidding to win the Wells Fargo for a third time following wins in 2010 (his first PGA Tour victory) and 2015.
