Rory McIlroy admitted he has no concerns over his ability to turn his form around as his Masters preparations took another hit with a missed cut at the Valspar Championship, Sky Sports report.
The 28-year-old carded back-to-back rounds of 73, meaning he missed the weekends play by two shots.
McIlroy three putted on three occasions during his second round in Florida, and after his second missed cut of the season, he now turns his attentions to next week’s star-studded field Arnold Palmer Invitational.
The Northern Irishman insisted his iron game was again out of sync but believes that the good work he was putting in on the practice range will soon start to show on the course.
When asked if he was worried about his recent form, McIlroy said:
No. I mean, it’s early in the season, it’s a long year and I’ve shown signs of good play this year already. I just need to see a couple of good scores and I think that will maybe give me a little boost going forward. So it’s nice that I’m playing again next week and have a chance to try and do that.
McIlroy will be hoping he can find some form next week ahead of the Masters at the Augusta National, the only major he is yet to win.
