Rory McIlroy: With the disappointment of Augusta, it has been a taxing 12 months mentally

Rory McIlroy has made his first comments after missing the cut at the Masters Tournament at Augusta National last month, despite being regarded as one of the favourites to win the tournament.

One week after failing to push for the title in Augusta, McIlroy withdrew from the RBC Heritage at Harbour Town Golf Links.

He was accused of breaking the PGA Tour rules, as players are only allowed to pull out of one elevated event per year.

"More for my mental and emotional well-being, I needed to be at home for those few weeks," McIlroy told Golf Channel.

"I think I'm in a better head space than I was. I needed a break for me.

"Obviously, after the disappointment of Augusta, it's been a pretty taxing 12 months mentally, so it was nice to just try to disconnect and get away from it."

Rory McIlroy's comeback

McIlroy went on to stress that he is ready to bounce back after the Augusta disappointment. He will make his comeback at Quail Hollow.

"It's nice to come back and feel refreshed," he added.

"That run-up to Augusta is always a stressful enough couple of weeks trying making sure everything's in the right order and making sure your game's in good shape.

"I think for me it was a nice reset because I still had to realise that there's three more majors this year, there's a ton left to play for."
