Rory McIlroy: “I’m A Little Uncomfortable Over The Ball At The Minute”

Rory McIlroy has said that he is “a little uncomfortable over the ball at the minute” as he looks to build up his confidence ahead of July’s Open Championship.

McIlroy had a solid performance at last weekend’s Travellers championship finishing in T-12 position alongside Ryan Blaum and Jason Day on -11.

Despite the strong showing which included an excellent first round 64, McIlroy claimed that he wasn’t pleased with his current form and is looking to improve as he heads into the Open Championship on July 19th-22nd.

“I’m just a little uncomfortable over the ball at the minute. Just knowing my swing isn’t quite where I want it to be and I’m still working on it.

“Hopefully just some more practice and a few more reps and seeing some better shots on the course I’ll be a little more comfortable going into the third major there.”

The Northern Irish man failed to make the cut at the US Open at Shinnecock Hills and will be looking for a strong showing in the Irish Open on July 5th to build up some momentum before the third major of the year.

McIlroy has had some success this season despite the apparent unhappiness at his game, winning the Arnold Palmer Invitational and finishing second in BWA PGA Championships and Omega Dubai Desert Classic.

Rory McIlroy will be looking for his fifth major championship when he competes at this year’s Open Championship.
