Former world number one golfer Rory McIlroy has admitted that he needed to "recharge the batteries" when he went on holiday to Ibiza with a group of his friends.
The Northern Irishman flew to the Spanish island for a week after missing the cut at the Irish Open around a fortnight ago.
"I had just over a couple of weeks off and in the first of those I went on holiday with a few of the boys, which was nice as I just chilled out," ESPN quotes McIlroy as saying.
"It was the first time in four years that I had gone on a lads' trip. It was great, chilled out and it was nice to get away from the game for a bit. It was nice to have that chance to recharge the batteries."
