To say that Rory McIlroy was disappointed in his finish Saturday would be an understatement.
McIlroy birdied four of his first 12 holes, then stumbled home with a slew of bogeys, including one on the par-4 18th. Still, he maintained that his ball-stirking is coming around.
"I had a 5-foot putt to go 5-under through 13 and 3-putted there," McIlroy said. "Didn't have the best of finishes, but I saw a lot of positives out there, I hit the ball really wet, the best I've hit it on the course this week and made me really happy with my game. I needed to eradicate those mistakes.
"It's all moving in the right direction. I definitely feel like I played a lot better than the 71 on the scorecard suggests. So, you know, even though it wasn't my best round, scoring-wise, it was still a great one for me."
