Golf World No. 2 Rory McIlroy has pushed the blame on his golf ball this time after he failed to complete the career grand slam yet again.
The golf star was tipped to do the career grand slam at Augusta but he ended up six shots from the eventual winner Sergio Garcia.
His display at the event leaves much to be desired as he finished in seventh place. His best result at the tournament remains the top four finish in 2015. The expectations have been much and he has not been able to handle it very well.
“I need to change my golf ball. That’s a big thing. I thought my golf ball this week was doing weird things in the wind. It was very inconsistent so there’s one thing I will change and try to work on the next few weeks,” he said.
Rory added that he feels his swinging is still good and his putting. He feels something is wrong with the equipment to he would work around them.
“I’m going to tinker with some equipment over the next couple of weeks and find something better,” he said. He is set to feature at the Players’ Championship at Sawgrass ahead of the rest of the Majors this year. He said he was confident of good things to come despite failing to match expectations at Augusta.
“I’ve turned my focus to getting ready for the US Open in June and trying to add to my Major tally there. Erin Hills is an unknown for everyone but Birkdale is one of the best Open courses on the roster and we are going to Quail Hollow for the US PGA where I’ve had success in the past so there are nothing but positives ahead,” he said.
He added that he would need to work hard and put myself in a better position to win titles.
