I haven't played well enough when it has counted, admits Rory McIlroy
"I have put myself in contention in the majors".
"It's going to be the quintessential target golf", McIlroy said.
Most significantly, Woods also led the Open at Carnoustie with eight holes to play, only to double bogey the 11th and drop another shot on the next as playing partner Francesco Molinari went on to lift the Claret Jug. "I had won the U.S. Open at Pebble Beach and the Open Championship was at St. Andrews a month later, so I wasn't really asked a lot, other than, 'What would it be like to complete the career Grand Slam at St. Andrews?"'
