Rory McIlroy on St.Andrews: “I wish things would have worked out differently, but.."

St Andrews could host the Open in five years' time. Rory McIlroy wants to forget about the negative experience he had previously because there are many good memories from before. “I have had so many great memories over the years,” McIlroy said, as quoted by eurosport.com. “It is where I got my Tour card, and played two Open Championships here - played great in both of them.
I have had so many great memories here and those memories far outweigh what happened in July”.

Cameron Smith spoiled his plan in the last final. However, McIlroy does not give up on his goals and wants to be at the very top. There are many positive things that happened to him in St.Andrews. He wants his focus to stay there.

“I wish things would have worked out differently, but at the same time St Andrews means a lot more to me than trying to win a Claret Jug here,” he said. “I have been coming here for so many years. It has been a big part of my life, and I don’t think I would be doing myself justice if I did not see all the good things St Andrews has given me and provided me over the years.“

Rory McIlroy: “I am very grateful to be able to play here"

Rory McIlroy is optimistic about his future.

He is in good shape, he has shown great games several times and Rory is aware that he could be even better. “I am very grateful to be able to play here, experience it, the memories,” the 33-year-old said. “I will have other chances to win Claret Jugs around here so it was not my last chance.
Hopefully if I can keep playing the way I am playing then when the Open rolls around in five years’ time, I'll have another good chance”.
