“That’s the Open Championship and that’s the way some years go. You either deal with the weather or just wait for a year when it’s nice.

“My game is suited for basically every golf course and most conditions, but these conditions I just don’t enjoy playing in really.

“That’s the bottom line. I’d rather play when it’s 80 degrees and sunny and not much wind.”

Ominously, McIlroy added: “There’s no point in changing your game for one week a year.

“I’m going to spend a few days at home now getting my swing back to where it needs to be. The wind sort of messes it up a little bit.”
