Golf is frustrating, even for the world’s best. Rory McIlroy is the latest to admit this well-known fact of life when he missed the cut at the European Tour’s Dubai Duty Free Irish Open, a tournament which he and his foundation hosts.
“I’m frustrated. I felt like I was making some good ground – obviously not getting close to the lead, but being around for the weekend,” McIlroy said, according to Golf Channel report.
“My short game, in general, it’s just silly mistakes,” he continued. “I’m just not being very efficieint with my scoring and that’s why I’m making it difficult for myself. Just need to tidy up the short game a little bit; I feel like the long game is there.”

McIlroy shot a pedestrian 1-over par 73 at Royal Portrush on Friday during the second round leading the defending champion to his fourth missed cut in five years.
“Obviously, I might have a few commitments here this weekend, but I need to practice,” he said. “I need to get sharp and get ready for next week and ultimately for The Open in a couple week’s time.”
