McIlroy unlikely to make swift RBC Heritage return after lowly finish of joint-41st
Rory McIlroy admits that a quick return to the RBC Heritage is unlikely after finishing 41st on another disappointing day at Hilton Head.
Number one in the world has not been at Harbor Town Golf Links since his 58th place in 2009, and he had another difficult week in South Carolina.
McIlroy scored a one-under-70 on Sunday to take eleven shots behind winner Webb Simpson, who contributed to his success at the Phoenix Open in February and won several titles in the same year for the first time since 2011.
"When I got here and played on the golf course, I kind of remembered why I wasn't here for a while. It's tough," said McIlroy.
"It's a beautiful place. There are other courses on the tour that are probably a little better for my game, and of course the week after the Masters [when the tournament is traditionally in mid-April] is always a difficult one.
"People like to come here and decompress, but my idea of decompression is not to see golf clubs for a week.
"I had a decent start and then the ball stopped in the water on four somehow any momentum. After that I played well. I did nine birdies and then a few birdies that came in on the home track."
"It's okay. It's one of those weeks when there were obviously low scores, very many. You had to punch a lot of putts and I haven't done it over the week. But I'm still pretty happy with how I got in who played in Hartford next weekend. "
McIlroy will play at the Travelers Championship in the TPC River Highlands, which starts on Thursday.
