McIlroy out to putt it right

Rory McIlroy can’t wait to return to action in three weeks’ time so he can erase the bad memories of a disappointing USPGA performance.
The US Open champion pointed to his poor putting and not his injured right arm as the real reason behind his failure to challenge for the final Major of the season.
After three-putting three times in a third round 74 that sent him sliding towards the bottom of the leaderboard on seven over part, the 22-year old was hopeful that rest and treatment will allow him to recover fully from a pronator muscle strain and make his comeback in the Omega European Masters in Crans Montana at the start of next month.
“I want to try and finish as high up in The Race to Dubai,” said McIlroy. “Although, it looks as if Luke Donald has it sealed up."
