McIlroy stays positive

Rory McIlroy was philosophical after he failed to live up to his billing as one of the favourites for The Masters at Augusta.

The world number two ended the tournament on five over after rounds of 77 and 76 over the weekend spoiled what had been a solid start on Thursday and Friday

"It was a disappointing weekend, just one of those things," he said. "I played pretty well over the first couple of days and then Saturday just didn't have it. That front nine (42) sort of killed me for the rest of the tournament."

He added: "But I'll come back next year and try my best again.

"I'll take a couple weeks off, reflect and think about what I didn't do so well."
