McIlroy Ready to Let Rip at US Open

Darren Clarke claims a fit again Rory McIlroy can win this week’s US PGA at one of America’s toughest links courses.

Rory McIlroy has revealed how he never touched a club for seven days in the aftermath of the Irish Open because he was so exhausted.

But even though he failed to make the cut at Royal County Down a week after playing poorly at the BMW PGA at Wentworth, the world’s No 1 has insisted he is fit and ready in a bid to win his fifth major, the US Open at Chambers Bay near Seattle.

McIlroy, 26, believes he is fully recovered after suffering what he described as a “blip” at Wentworth and Newcastle.

He said: “My game is in great shape. I took a whole week off after the Irish Open. I’ve had a good few days of practice back home in Florida and I feel like I can have a summer not too dissimilar to last year.”

That’s when he won two majors as well as the WGC title leaving rivals wondering if anybody in the history of the game had ever played better in such a spell. Missing the final two rounds at RCD and shooting 80 at Wentworth are history as far as he is concerned.

Rory McIlroy has revealed how he never touched a club for seven days in the aftermath of the Irish Open because he was so exhausted.

He added: “I didn’t really look much into what happened at those last two events. I think I can put them down to a little bit of fatigue. I’d played five weeks in a row, had won twice and mentally was ready to have a break and just get away with it. That’s why I didn’t touch a club for seven days after County Down. I needed that.”
