Rory McIlroy: "I'm getting back to my best"

After a torrid year on both the PGA and European Tours, former World No1 Rory McIlroy has found some solace in the East with a joint second in the Korean Open that has him feeling that things are on the turn.

Carding five birdies in his final round, McIlroy gave eventual winner Kang Sung-hoon a scare, before the home-town player eventually secured the one shot victory.

"Things are definitely on the up," said McIlroy. "I feel like I'm getting back to where I need to be.
"I've had to stay patient this season - it hasn't been one of my best - but it's getting there, it definitely is."

Now out of the top five, the performance was just the tonic the 24-year-old Northern Irishman needs before two tournaments in Shanghai at the BMW Masters that recently teed off and the HSBC WGC Championships the following week.

"I'm excited about these next two weeks in China," McIlroy said. "They're a big two weeks for me to get a little bit of momentum for the end of the season and going into 2014.

"My putter let me down in the last couple of days [in Korea]. If I can get the putting right, hopefully I'll have a chance."
