McIlroy admits he has “mental hurdle” to overcome

The Masters proves elusive once again for Northern star

Rory McIlroy admits his failure to win the Masters is all in his head and down to mental pressure.

The world No 3 birdied four of the last six holes when all was lost and signed for a 71 to finish tied for 10th, six shots behind Danny Willett on one-over par.

It was ironic in the end that McIlroy blamed his tentativeness for his failure to win the Masters or, given his “mental” struggles, that there has been no talk of him seeking professional help having admitted that the longer the wait goes on, the greater the burden.

“Well, I was in a great position going into the weekend, a shot back in the final group on Saturday and I just didn’t play the golf I needed to when it really mattered,” McIlroy said.  

“That’s the thing that I take away not just from this week, but from previous Masters.  I’ve been in position before and I haven’t got the job done when I needed to and I don’t think that’s anything to do with my game, I think that’s more me mentally and I’m trying to deal with the pressure of it and the thrill of the achievement if it were to happen.  I think that’s the thing that’s really holding me back.
