Rory hopes his good form will continue
Rory McIlroy hopes his touch is returning in time for this month’s Ryder Cup after storming to victory at the Deutsche Bank Championship. The world No. 3 overturned a six-shot deficit on the final day at TPC Boston to win by two strokes from Paul Casey. It was the Northern Irishman’s first PGA Tour title for 16 months and elevated him to fourth in the FedExCup standings. McIlroy had been four over par after the first three holes of his first round but his play afterwards was outstanding and the 27-year-old was particularly pleased with the improvements in his putting. He now hopes to maintain the momentum through the remainder of the FedExCup playoffs and on to the Ryder Cup at Hazeltine later this month. He said: “I knew my game was in good shape, I just needed to do something with the putting. I found something. “I still need to keep going with it, it’s definitely not the finished article, but it’s a big step in the right direction. “I’m excited with how my game is and what I’ve found this week, and hopefully I can keep it going for the next couple of tournaments, but ultimately into the Ryder Cup and trying to get a fourth one of those.” McIlroy is currently third in The European Tour Race to Dubai rankings.
