14 Apr 2014 20:08
Rory McIlroy ended a frustrating Masters on a high with his best round of the tournament on Sunday to record his first top-10 finish at Augusta National.

A day after he suffered the embarrassment of being beaten by a non-competing amateur marker, McIlroy provided a reminder of what is capable of with a final round of three-under-par 69.
-
"I've always enjoyed coming back here. I love the golf course," he said.
-
"I love playing it and I know I can do well here. It's just a matter of making the most of my chances because I gave myself plenty of chances here this week.

"If I had converted a few more and played the par-fives better, it could have been a different story."

With his fiance Caroline Wozniacki watching from the galleries, McIlroy finished the tournament at level par and tied for eighth place, surpassing his previous best result of equal 15th in 2011.

The Masters was the only major the Northern Irishman had not finished top 10 and he said his performance had given him renewed confidence he could eventually win the coveted green jacket.
-
"I'm really comfortable on the tees. I'm really comfortable with the second shots. I'm comfortable on the golf course," McIlroy said.
-
"I figured (out) something in my putting today on the sixth hole and then I putted a little better after that."
