Rory McIlroy happy to see the back of 2013 season

Roy McIlroy says that he is looking forward to time off after a long 2013 season.

Rory McIlroy has said that he is looking forward to his final tournament of the 2013 season at this week's Northwestern Mutual World Challenge.

The Northern Irishman, who has slipped from first to sixth in the world rankings, ended a year-long drought by beating Adam Scott by one shot in a thrilling finish to the Australian Open last week.

"I'm happy this is the last event of the year," Reuters quotes the 24-year-old as saying. "It will be nice to have a few weeks off.

"This last part of the season was all about trying to build momentum going into 2014, and I feel like for the most part I've done that.

"A couple of good finishes in Asia and I got a win in Australia. I'd love to get myself in the mix this week and finish the season off on a really high note."

This week's event at Sherwood Country Club in Thousand Oaks, California is hosted by Tiger Woods.
