Rory McIlroy ended his fourth round at the Arnold Palmer Invitational with a ridiculously long birdie putt. On the par-4 18th, McIlroy drained one from 59 feet. McIroy finished at Bay Hill at six-under, which is currently 10 strokes behind the leaders.
McIlroy’s five PGA Tour appearances prior to today consist of a tie for 26th, a tie for 11th, a tie for 20th, a missed cut, and his best result thus far, a tie for third at the WGC-Cadillac Championship. After he finished up, McIlroy spoke to the media about his performances this year.
Via PGA Tour: “It’s nothing to do with me technically,” McIlroy said. “It’s more mental.
“I’m beating myself up over mistakes that I’m making on the course and then I’m not letting myself get over it so that it sort of lingers there for the next few holes.”
It’s disappointing to see McIlroy dropping back after his performance at the WGC, but he’s still tied with Jordan Spieth at 8/1 odds to win the Masters according to GolfOdds.com.
