McIlroy to lessen 2013 schedule

Rory McIlroy has stated his intention to reduce his schedule in 2013 in the hopes of keeping his focus in tournaments.

The World No1 has admitted he "struggles" to maintain a level of intensity throughout the year, citing a lack of motivation as the reason for a dismal exit from the World Golf Final in Turkey.

So far McIlroy has played in 21 tournaments, excluding Europe's heroics in Medinah at the Ryder Cup, and still has a number of events to play including the Race to Dubai and another Tiger Woods showdown in China.

Throw into the mix a jet-setting girlfriend, in the form of tennis star Caroline Wozniacki, and it's no surprise McIlroy is looking to reign things in on the course.

I would just love to cut my schedule back even further and I think next year I will cut it down again to a max play of 22 or 23," McIlroy said.

"I still have got some big events left and I would love to win the Race to Dubai and repeat what Luke did also winning the money list on the PGA Tour, so I am going to give it one last push.

"It has been a great season and I am ready to be done. It is just such a long season these days. But then I feel I have got an obligation to play some of these big events leading up to Dubai.

"However I won't find it tough to get myself up for my last events as I want to especially win the Race to Dubai after coming close a few times."
