Nick Faldo says Rory McIlroy is making mistakes ahead of British Open
Faldo grows increasingly of McIlroy and his performance
“I hope he hasn’t gone too far that it’s damaged his confidence.”
McIlroy has yet to formally respond to Faldo’s public statements on his career, but he did try another new driver during a practice round at Muirfield on Sunday and declared his fondness for it after a four over par 75.
The Co. Down native said, “I went over to London after the Irish Open, tried a few drivers with different settings and as soon I hit it I said, ‘This is the one.’ It feels great.”
Speaking after the practice round, WeeMac also claimed he is looking forward to the British Open test despite his lack of competitive golf this season.
“It’s going to be a great test. It’s fast and firm and there was a decent wind today,” he said.
“I hit one ball because I wanted to try to get myself in the competitive mode. The thing is, if you hit it in the rough here, you’re chipping out.
“I played okay, but dropped five shots in three holes, but four-over is not the worst score around here. I really like this course and feel I can play well around here.”
