Rory McIlroy admits that The Masters messed with his head as PGA star set for return at Wells Fargo Championship | The Sun

RORY McILROY admits that missing the cut at The Masters messed with his head.

The Holywood hotshot is back in action at this week’s Wells Fargo Championship in North Carolina.

That is after sacking off an appearance at the RBC Heritage — and giving up $3million of his Player Impact Program winnings by missing a second designated event.

McIlroy says it was down to his heartache after failing once more to grab the Green Jacket and complete the career Grand Slam.

He said: “I needed a break for me.

“After the disappointment of Augusta and a taxing 12 months mentally it was nice to just try to disconnect a little bit.

“But it’s nice to come back and feel refreshed. I think we’re on a busy run here from now until the play-offs — I’m excited to get going again.”

And McIlroy knows it is important to shine at Quail Hollow this week.

He added: “After the disappointment of Augusta and how I played there it was for my emotional and mental well-being that I needed to be at home.

“But I am looking forward to getting back at it this week.”
