Quick Quotes

Q. Reminiscent of 2014 around August Valhalla, Kentucky, trying to lag a 2-putter, 35-footer whatever it is. The day itself, how did it go for you? Because obviously there's stuff to work on there?

RORY McILROY: Yeah, definitely. Started off nicely. And then yeah, a couple, like two poor shots: The wedge shot on the 8th hole and the drive left on 12. Apart from that, it was okay.

I haven't had my best over the last couple of days but I don't feel like I'm too far away so hopefully I get an opportunity to play another couple of rounds here tomorrow, and you know, try to finish the week off on a good, positive note.

Q. There were a few shots in The Irish Open, especially on Sunday last week, that obviously were not in the locker that you would like to take out of the locker. What are the work-ons?

RORY McILROY: I did a bit of work on Wednesday afternoon, just my clubface and my path are a little too far apart, putts are too far to the left, clubface is getting a bit too far to the right. A bad shot is like that right shot but sometimes if I try to over-correct it, but the face and the path don't match up, like I did on 12. Just a little bit of work.

I mean, again, I don't feel like it's too far away. I feel like my go-to shot at the minute is a fade, which is a little unusual for me. My sort of first instinct is to aim right of the target and play a draw, but if that's not coming truly to me, then it just takes me a little while to get used to aiming the ball either at the target or left of the target and just letting it come back out.
