Rory McIlroy: "I'm pretty frustrated"
By mustang6560 on 5/31/13
Rory McIlroy set a new personal worst record yesterday.
He opened with a 6-over-78 in the first round of the Memorial Tournament yesterday, which is his worst first round score as a professional.
"I'm pretty frustrated," McIlroy said. "I'm trying not to let it get to me. I don't have any explanations for (the 78)."Rory was asked if the process of setting up his new management company has been a distraction off the course.
"I'm fully focused on what I need to do," McIlroy said. "And I didn't think I played as bad as the score would say ... I thought coming off the back end of last year, winning the PGA Championship, I wanted to do the same sort of things. It just hasn't happened. I haven't lived up to my own expectations."At the moment, Rory is in danger of missing his second cut in as many weeks. The Northern Irishman missed the cut at the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth last week. If he fails to put together a solid round this afternoon, Rory will miss back to back cuts for the first time since last summer, which is not something you want to do the week before the U.S. Open.

I read once where Tiger said that he changed his swing the first time because when it was on he was hard to beat, but when it wasn't on he couldn't win. Sounds like Rory to the max.
I think the pressure is catching up to Rory...he was beating up on Tiger when he was down..now he is back and he cant take the pressure. Presure does funny things to you. Anyone can make a 3 foot putt, but can you make a 3 foot putt with a crane shoved up your a$$????
I can't make a three foot putt if anybody is watching.
