World number one Rory McIlroy has admitted that he has no qualms and is quite happy about his game as he heads into World Golf Championship Match Play Championship.
The Northern Irishman was quick to put the blame on his poor swing as he bowed out prematurely from the Abu Dhabi Championship in January, but the 23 year old, who has been widely criticized for switching from Titleist to Nike in a lucrative deal that will see him pocket millions of dollars, has arrived in the desert state Arizona with a driver that is slightly heavier as well as new putter.
According to the 23 year old, the clubs that he was playing with at Abu Dhabi were performing quite well but the reason he bowed out of the tournament was because his swing was not his best. Rory McIlroy went on to add that he feels that he has turned a corner with his swing. But he did mention that he has got his swing back on track and added that it is what which will ultimately help him get his game back on track. He added that he is much happier with the way he is swinging the club.
McIlroy, who finished as runner up in the same competition last year will go head to head against Shane Lowry in the first round of the event on Wednesday. According to the world number one, he has had a few weeks off to recharge the batteries and he feels that he is coming into the event prepared.
Rory McIlroy is also confident that his swing will help him a lot in the event and this is one reason for his high confidence as he heads into the tournament, looking to secure his first title of the season and get his form back.
