Rory McIlroy believes that there are enough tournaments left in the season for him to recover from his bad patch of form in the summer.

Rory McIlroy has conceded that his recent troubles have prevented him from reaching his pre-season targets.

The 23-year-old managed to reach the top of the world rankings at the beginning of the year but a difficult summer in Europe and on the PGA Tour means that there are still achievements he wants to experience this season.

"There were a few goals I set myself at the start of the year, which I achieved - getting to number one in the world and winning a tournament early," McIlroy told reporters ahead of the USPGA Championship. "The second half has still been pretty good, but a little bit more of a struggle.

"If I had to give my season a grade to this point I'd probably give it a B, but there's still a lot of golf left to play."

The Northern Irishman's season will improve dramatically if he can win the second major tournament of his career at Kiawah Island this week.
