Rory McIlroy might have seen his slim Dubai Duty Free Irish Open hopes dashed by a third-round 73, but he’s bullish about Ireland’s chances of Olympic glory in Tokyo.

The Holywood star got caught out by wet and breezy early conditions at Mount Juliet, and while he saw his hopes of a charge on moving day evaporate when he bogeyed the third and double-bogeyed the fourth as Shane Lowry crashed to a 74, he’s upbeat about coming home from Japan with a medal.
