Quick reaction: Rory on his 71


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."
