Simplicity the key for McIlroy

Simplicity the key for McIlroy

Rory McIlroy says focusing on what comes naturally is the key to him returning to the top of the world rankings after firing a closing 66 to win the CJ Cup.

The Northern Irishman claimed his 20th PGA Tour title at the Summit Club on Sunday and is 11/2 to win the Money List this season, while he is 12/1 for April's 2022 Masters.

McIlroy edges out Morikawa

McIlroy mixed five birdies, an eagle and a bogey in Las Vegas on his way to finishing the tournament on 25-under, a shot clear of Open champion Collin Morikawa.

Halfway leader Keith Mitchell ended the week in a tie for third on 22-under alongside Rickie Fowler and Talor Gooch, while Adam Scott was one of a trio to finish joint fifth, a further stroke back.

Inconsistency has plagued McIlroy in recent years and he has admitted to trying to overcomplicate things in a bid to improve.

The 32-year-old caused controversy ahead of the tournament when stating his belief that he is the best in the world when playing his own game but those comments bore fruit as he came out on top in Nevada.

Sunday's triumph saw him go straight in at number four in the FedEx Cup standings after winning his first event of the new season and he is clearly bullish about his chances going forward.

The County Down man admits his quest for success, including that elusive fifth major, has often resulted in him trying too hard and creating his own obstacles.

Rory to do it his way

Instead, McIlroy has pledged to keep things simple and rely on his incredible natural talent in his bid to get back to the top of the game.

"There was a lot of reflection the last couple weeks and this is what I need to do," the world number eight said. "I just need to play golf, I need to simplify it, I need to just be me.

"It's just a matter of me getting back to playing golf my way. That starts with being creative and being visual and maybe not being as technical with it."
