Rory McIlroy admits that he struggled to motivate himself for the World Golf Final in Turkey this week.

Rory McIlroy has revealed that he wasn't too disappointed at being knocked out of the World Golf Final by Tiger Woods on Thursday.

The world number one admitted that he wasn't fully motivated for the competition and is glad that he will have the chance to spend time with his girlfriend, Caroline Wozniacki.

McIlroy said: "I'm not that disappointed because I've got the afternoon off around the pool - I don't mind.

"I've treated this week as, 'Its great to come here, nice weather, play a bit of golf, I get to spend some time with Caroline'. I viewed it as a week like that. I didn't touch a club until the first day.

"I probably lacked a little bit of motivation. It is Ryder Cup blues. I have basically drawn a line after the Ryder Cup. It has been a great season and I am ready to be done. I have another week off next week and get myself up for the last push for the Race to Dubai."

British duo Justin Rose and Lee Westwood will compete in the final of the tournament on Friday morning.
