Rory McIlroy clears the air over US Open and Open Championship comments

Rory McIlroy clears the air over US Open and Open Championship comments

"I grinded really well", Hatton said.

Here's everything you need to know prior to the second round of the Wells Fargo Championship. For McIlroy, though, it is quite possible.

And McIlroy was pleased with his first round score.

"All of a sudden I'm just looking out like, wow, I can see everything", Reed said. "To me, it is the most special tournament that we play and the one everyone desperately wants to win". And I thought Patrick (Reed) did a fantastic job on Sunday holding it together because he didn't have his best stuff. It is the biggest golf tournament in the world; the most amount of eyeballs; the most amount of hype; the most everything is at Augusta.

Deadly Dust Storm and Thundershowers Kill at Least 110 in India
At least 90 people were killed as squalls and dust storms tore across parts of northern India , weeks ahead of the monsoon rains. The storm also reached the capital of Delhi , almost 100 km (62 miles) away, along with heavy rains late Wednesday evening.

"I started off with three good tee shots, put myself in a great position on 12 to hit a sand wedge in to leave myself an uphill putt and have a good look for birdie". What did he do? "I went back home and decompressed, binge-watched a couple of shows, read a couple of books, drank a few bottles of wine".

However, he shot a 2-over-par 74 on Sunday and finished tied for fifth, six shots behind first-time victor Reed.

But that was surely nullified by the fact he's a menacing presence on the leaderboard once more at a Quail Hollow venue where he already has two wins to his name. One of the game's streakiest players, he plays his best when he's front-running.

"It was more the quiet moments", McIlroy said. In 2015, his 61 in the third round is the tournament record low round. McIlroy points out that since par is 71 now, a 267 would only get you to 17 under. Defending champion Brian Harman is without a win in the 2017-2018 season, but his consistency has him in the top 20 of the FedEx Cup standings.

Iran Not Willing to Accept Changes to Nuclear Agreement
French President Emmanuel Macron on Wednesday reiterated his commitment to the accord but admitted that it needed strengthening. Iran has always denied it sought a nuclear weapon, insisting its atomic programme was for civilian purposes.

"Once I got back in my sort of routine, I was fine".

"The Masters has become the biggest golf tournament in the world and I'm comfortable saying that", said the Northern Irishman, who counts two PGA Championship titles among his four majors.

One of the most admirable features of Rory McIlroy's career to date has been his ability to bounce back from adversity.

"I'm a very proud victor of both of those majors. I wasn't trying to be disrespectful at all".

Congressmen Formally Nominate Trump for 2019 Nobel Peace Prize
Just FYI, nominations for the Nobel Peace Prize closed in February. "And maybe it won't", Trump said last week. At a rally in MI last weekend, supporters chanted "No-bel, No-bel, No-bel" when Trump mentioned North Korea .

As for that 29 birthday, McIlroy said a proper party would be held after the tournament was over - if he wins. "And if I happen to do well on Sunday and things go the right way, I'll celebrate on Sunday night".
