McIlroy strikes form in Masters week

9:37 am on 11 April 2013

The world golf number two Rory McIlroy says anything but winning the US Masters this week will be a disappointment.

The 23-year-old Northern Irishman has already won two majors, though he's had an indifferent year after changing clubs as part of a major sponsorship deal.

But he did finish runner-up in the Texas Open on Monday, and feels his game is improving.

McIlroy tees off in the second to last group, in company with the American Keegan Bradley and the Swede Frederik Jacobsen.
