Rory carded a one-over 71 to fall 11 strokes behind Viktor HovlandAlthough, as he himself emphasized, ‘his score didn’t reflect that he feels good’, he is still much better than a few days ago.“I’m okay.
I certainly feel better today than I felt the rest of the week. Still a little limited in what can do. I have to hit the driver pretty low out there, but I felt like I retained my posture a little bit better today, which was great.
My score didn’t reflect it, but yeah, feeling better, which is a good sign”. – he said, as quoted by independent.ie

So not too concerned that it’s going give me any bother for the next few weeks.”The Northern Irishman is disappointed as the injury came when he thought he could do great things. However, his mentality is such that he does not plan to give up a single moment..

It’s a shame that it happened this week and I haven’t really been able to get the best out of myself, but I’m pretty confident that I’m going to be in a good spot for the next few weeks”.
