Last quote by Rory McIlroy

I don't know if it's just me getting used to it or if it's actually a little bit better but it isn't any worse so that's a positive. I don't have trouble breathing, so all the signs point that it's not going to be too serious. It's just giving me a bit of discomfort and I just need to get it checked out.feedback

Rory McIlroy quotes

It's in the same area as the injury at the start of the year. If that injury was an eight or a nine in terms of pain and soreness and stiffness, this is around a four or five. It might just be a flare-up of what happened previously and I just need to rest for a few days and it might be OK. Hopefully that's what it shows in the scan.feedback

But there's so many unknowns because we don't even know … unless you get an image taken of it and you know exactly what's going on you don't know. We are just making sure that the tissue around it is as loose as it possibly can be and at least the warm weather helps keep it not stiffened up.feedback

If there was any weight on anyone's shoulders, it was Erica. She was the one who was stressing over the wedding; I was like, It's going to be fine.' It feels normal. I feel like we've been married for the past year-and-a-half anyway. We live together, we travel together, there's nothing she doesn't know about me and vice versa, so it feels pretty much the same.feedback

It seems like with everything that's went on the last few weeks with getting married and teaming up with TaylorMade and everything, it seems like everything's very settled. I've been on tour 10 years, and it's very rare that you get really excited about your equipment. I feel like it's a new chapter in my life with a lot of stuff going on, but I really feel with the new equipment, as well, it's hopefully going to take me to that next level.feedback

I'm in a great place in my life. I feel very settled and very lucky to be in this position, and now it's just about trying to make the most of, I guess, the fortune that I've had.feedback

I've been on Tour for 10 years, and it's very rare that you get really excited about your equipment. I feel like it's a new chapter in my life with a lot of stuff going on, but I really feel with the new equipment, as well, it's hopefully going to take me to that next level.feedback

I've finally got a home to go to. For the past few years I've only been able to spend 120 days in the States and 90 in the UK, so I've felt like a proper nomad. From now on I'm going to have a proper base, somewhere I can call home. It just makes you feel more centred, more settled, knowing you have somewhere to go back to any time you feel like it.feedback

I came to the conclusion that was the best way for me to try to get back to world No 1, to try to win more majors. You know, I've been on tour for 10 years. It's very rare that you get excited about your equipment – but I am. With the marriage and everything it's a new chapter in my life, and I really feel with the new equipment as well, it's hopefully going to take me to that next level.feedback

I cried when I watched Sergio winning the Masters. For all Justin [Rose, the Englishman who finished second] is a good friend of mine, after all that Sergio has been through, it was just such a special moment. I didn't see him until the wedding and gave him a bear hug. Sergio was still so excited he was dancing up and down talking about it. I've told Sergio I want to be a groomsman at his wedding [when he marries Angela Akins in Austin in July].feedback

I've always felt that driving is a big advantage for me if I can drive the ball well. Here, it just doesn't let me do that, and earlier on in my career I had to come to terms with that and come to terms with hitting the ball in the same positions as everyone else off the tee and then trying to beat them in from there.feedback

I needed to address a few issues in between Augusta and here, and I did that with the first 10 days after Augusta.feedback

I came to the conclusion that was the best way forward for me to try and improve, try and win more, try to get back to world No. 1, try to win more majors. So I'm really excited about that.feedback

It was obviously the best weekend of my life, and hopefully, the best weekend of Erica's, as well. It seems like with everything that's went on the last few weeks – with getting married and teaming up with TaylorMade – it seems like everything's very settled. There's not many question marks going on in my life right now. I feel like everything's exactly where it's meant to be, and if you feel like that off the golf course, then I can only imagine that it will help you on it.feedback

It's a great time in my life. It would have been nice to walk down the aisle in the Green Jacket. I'll come back refreshed and start a new chapter in my life.feedback

I would have ripped somebody's hand off for a 72 at the 10th tee. Amnd to feel somewhat disappointed because I had a chance for birdie at 17, to shoot par I'm really happy with that. It puts me in a good frame of mind for Friday.feedback

I felt like I could have shot a couple under out there today, two- or three-under par. But I missed a couple of short ones and got a little bit unlucky at the last.feedback

I feel like I've put a few mental processes in place where I can focus on the job at hand. Nothing's given to you. You have to go and work for it. If I can put together a 67 or a 66 tomorrow, I feel like I'll be right in there for Sunday. I feel like I've taken lessons from that day, and they have served me well to this point. That was a bonus to make three after that tee shot.feedback

The wind is supposed to be basically nonexistent, five to 10 miles an hour, which really isn't much around here. I would say, a couple of rounds in the mid- to high 60s, you'd have to shoot to have a chance.feedback

Going into the weekend I need some spells and to put a run together.feedback

I got two bad breaks with hitting the pin and then the wind deceived me. I just have to go out and birdie the first on Saturday and it will all be forgotten. I still feel like I'm right in this tournament.feedback

I sort of a feel a little bit like what Phil (Mickelson) goes through when he goes to the U.S. Open. But at the same time, I haven't finished second at Augusta six times. ... But yeah, winning at Augusta is difficult enough. You want to win the tournament that week. You just want to beat the guys that you're playing, and if you do that, you know that all this other great stuff comes along with it.feedback

Look, it's tough to get over. Leaving and coming back here in 2012, of course your mind does go back to the previous year when you're thinking about what could have been. If only I had parred 10,' and, If only I didn't three-putt 11.' Those things do run through your mind.feedback

I don't want to call it a collapse. I can assure you. Jordan will be fine.feedback

It's giving me a chance to prepare a little bit better. I feel like I've worked a lot on my short game. If anything I feel like that part of my game is as sharp as it has been ever going into Augusta, so that's a good thing. Right now I can't see a downside to not having played as much as I planned to. I feel really healthy. And freshness could help, especially mentally. Mentally, going in there and not being drained is a good thing as well.feedback

That week was why you see the fields in tournaments so deep as they are today. Tiger's win inspired so many kids to go out and play the game and it's why there is so much parity in professional golf right now. That's Tiger's legacy and it all started that week. You see it everywhere in the game; everyone is just so much more professional. And every child with hopes of being a professional golfer wanted to be Tiger Woods after that day.feedback

In 2012, I couldn't wait for the Masters to start. I couldn't wait for it to start because I wanted redemption and I wanted a chance to prove myself again. So that was a little bit of a different mindset. Everyone is different, I guess.feedback

I sympathise with him. The guy had a chance to win the Green Jacket and didn't. But he can console himself by opening up his wardrobe and seeing one hanging there. It's a little bit different to me in that respect. No matter what happens this year, those questions will still be there and linger a little bit.feedback

My upper body's just sort of outracing the club and I'm leaving the club face open and I just need to sort of square it.feedback

These two rounds were the sort of rounds I would have expected the first two days, not the last two.feedback

Phil rode his luck out there. But geez, if I was hitting it off the tee like he did today, there's no way I would shoot 68. That's the great thing about Phil. ... I would be a mess if I was hitting it the way he was today. I guess that's the difference between us. I like to see it going down the fairway and playing nice that way, where he goes like this and shoots two better than me. So there you go.feedback

I would have taken a 65 starting today and I definitely would have taken a two-shot lead going into the weekend, so I'm in a great position. I'm kicking myself because I missed a couple of short ones coming in, but overall I'm in a good spot and looking forward to being in contention over the weekend.feedback

Look, I'm in a great position. But I felt like I could have been a few more ahead.feedback

I just felt like I had a bit more energy. I had a bit more pep in my step. I wasn't just trying to get through the round today, I was trying to build on the score that I had and it was nice to feel like that again.feedback

I think for a lot of guys, it's an ego thing. It's not as if I earn more money because I'm the world No. 1 or 39, but it's just nice to be able to say that you're the best in the world at what you do.feedback

I was really going out there just trying to play my way back into competitive and tournament mode.feedback

No, I didn't really sleep. I was up all night worshiping the porcelain bowl. But I've waited long enough to play and wanted to get out here and be competitive and try to shoot a good score. What did I eat? The local stuff actually, which is what you're supposed to do, I think. I don't know what it was. I ate with Erica [Stoll, his fiancée] and my parents and they seemed fine this morning. But I haven't eaten so I'm a little weak The positive news is that I didn't feel the rib at all. It's great how it's responded over the last few weeks.feedback

I've waited long enough to play. I wanted to get out here and be competitive and try to shoot a good score. I don't feel anywhere near as bad as I did in China last year when I had the same thing. So hopefully, it's just a day thing and it will pass.feedback

Honestly, I haven't thought much about Augusta. My biggest concern has just been getting healthy and being able to get back here. I don't really want to tell you what I'm feeling right now.feedback

I've waited long enough to play. I wanted to get out here and be competitive, and play and try to shoot a good score.feedback

It was quite a week for me. I got to play with the president of the United States and the best golfer in the world.feedback

That was a bonus. I actually thought the tee shot was further left than it was. I got away with it and was able to get something up there onto the green.feedback

I think golf's emphasis on the rules can sometimes turn people away from it.feedback

All signs pointed towards Mexico being the one I could come back to and be 100 percent comfortable at. Hopefully it will work out that way and that's when I'm back.feedback

I'd like to ease my way back in gently. Mexico is the perfect time to return because it's four rounds, there's no cut. I can see how everything feels. I have a week off after that.feedback

I'm trying to get back for Mexico. That's my timetable for return. I could probably get back before that. For example, if I were to play Honda (the Honda Classic in late February) and then go straight to Mexico, I would be playing two weeks in a row.feedback

I think it's obvious. The fact I've won the FedEx Cup this year and won the Race to Dubai before made the decision a little easier. I guess it's out of my hands.feedback

Whenever we are going up against one of the greatest teams ever assembled, that's motivation enough.feedback

I've been very fortunate, everyone in Europe has been very fortunate, to play under some great captains. McGinley at Gleneagles (Scotland, in 2014) was the best captain that I had ever played under. I had a very special relationship with Paul.feedback
