Rory Mcllroy sizzles at Scottish Open
Rory Mcllroy missed the cut at his next European Event, the Irish Open, last month, after winning the BMW PGA Championship in England in late May. The Scottish season, this time, is mirroring the former No.1’s inconsistent season. Mcllroy has achieved a superb, course record 64 in Chilly and windy conditions at Royal Aberdeen on Thursday; it later imploded Friday, staggering 430 yard drive, registering over a 7-over-par 78. He is only at a six shots distance behind leaders Kristoffer Broberg, Marc Warren, and Ricardo Gonzalez. In keeping with his second round woes, it was surely the one of the biggest turnarounds; you are simply bound to see that.
He failed to hit under 70 in the second round nine times, at 13 stroke play events this season and his average stands at 72.2, the Golf Channel noted. Mcllroy told reporters that he would be much happier standing here after the couple of 71’s, but that’s simply not the case. It has not even been the case, whole year. He also said that he was looking forward to a great start indeed, but then he just falls away. But he also said that he can go out in the morning as he is still in the tournament and he will surely try his best and can gain those lost shots again.
He said that he has to try in anyway and somewhat has hold it together. Mcllroy’s front nine was no doubt was good, but they were not even terrible. He mixed up the three bogeys with one birdie. But on the back nine, he didn’t even hit a birdie and struck three bogeys and a double bogey. He was not far off missing another cut, from being in an outstanding position. Mcllroy said that now he can go on the weekend, as it’s another Friday out the way.
Phil Mickelson, the other marquee name at the event, said in a TV interview which was shown by Sky that he is a little bit concerned about the fact that it is taking up some extra energy than he would like to consume for the next upcoming week. But on the other side, it is also a good opportunity to focus in some of the difficult shots, they are going to face next week, so it simply works for both ways. And Mickelson is at five shots away from the pace.
It would not be the two majors in a row for Michelle Wie. Wie, who is the much hyped American, missed the cut at Women’s British Open at the location of Royal Birkdale in Southport, England shortly less than a month after claiming her first major, the US Open. Wie, who turned pro in the age of 15 told reporters that she missed a lot of greens and she is disappointed that she didn’t do much on any of the holes and it certainly didn’t go well in the way, like what she wants.
