Rory McIlroy: 'My game's not quite there'

Rory McIlroy says that he needs to improve in time for The Masters tournament next month.

Rory McIlroy has said that he needs to feel more confident in time for The Masters next month.

McIlroy finished tied ninth at the WGC-Cadillac Championship, scoring a final-round 72 having skewed two shots into the water on the final hole.

He apologised after throwing his three-iron into the water during his round on Friday.

"The game's just not quite there. I've got a week off now to try and work on it a little bit," McIlroy told Sky Sports News.

"I am pretty disappointed with how I played overall. I felt it was a little better again today for the most part but a bit of a disappointing finish. But it's just not quite 100%.

"My inability to hit the ball right-to-left isn't something that you want going into Augusta. It is something I want to try and work on a little bit."

The WGC-Cadillac Championship was won by one shot by Dustin Johnson.
