ORLANDO, FLORIDA | The Rory McIlroy boxscore at the Arnold Palmer Invitational: Rounds of 75-67-75-65; Sixteen birdies, two eagles, two bogeys; And six – count ‘em, six – double bogeys.
Interesting week to say the least.
“Interesting year,” McIlroy said. “It’s been very up and down. I’ve been alluding to pretty much every week there’s a lot of good golf in there which you’ve seen on Friday and (Sunday) but then I’m just making a lot of mistakes.
“Even today throwing in my customary double bogey. I’ve had more double bogeys this week than I’ve had bogies.
“If I can limit the mistakes. I felt like I was on the right road to doing that at Doral. But this week it sort of popped its head up again. I just need to – lot of great stuff in there and if I can limit those mistakes.”
McIlroy’s tournament started badly. He pulled his opening tee shot Thursday out of bounds and made a double bogey.
In four PGA Tour starts in 2016, McIlroy has one finish inside the top 20 – a tie for third at the WGC-Cadillac Championship where he had a four-stroke lead.
