Golfer Rory McIlroy has crashed out of the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open after failing to make the cut. This is the fourth time in five years that McIlroy has not progressed to the final day, and the 27-year-old has vowed to go ‘back to the drawing board’.

Its been a difficult year for Rory McIlroy, and things have only gotten worse for the Northern Irishman over the last few days of the Irish Open. Rory needed to score in the 60s to avoid missing the cut, but dropped shots and a double bogey saw the four-time major winner eliminated from the tournament.

With the British Open just around the corner McIlroy certainly has some work to do. Speaking of his performance, McIlroy explained: “I’m really disappointed. The last two times The Irish Open has been in Northern Ireland, not playing at the weekend, it’s obviously not where I want to be,”

He added: “So it’s back to the drawing board and practice a bit and get ready for next week in Scotland. I haven’t played as much as I would have liked this year, but I feel like I’m starting on a run of doing that. Next week in Scotland, then The Open, and I’m going to play a lot of events over the summer.”
