Rory McIlroy says he is confident that he will rectify some technical issues with his swing as he prepares for this week's US PGA Championship at Bellerive Country Club.

"The only thing I haven't done is win enough", McIlroy said. I've given myself a lot of chances. "I played in a lot of final groups and I haven't played well enough when it has counted".

"So that's something that I'm just trying to go through and try to figure out what I need to do to make that little step from contending and getting into final groups to lifting trophies". It's important to keep things in perspective and realize that, you know, you could win five times in a year and not win a major, and some people would think, "Well, you haven't won a major" - for some of the elite golfers, anyway.

"I have a sense of confidence and belief that I totally can get over the line and win one".

"But it's a process".

"Some of my driving let me down badly on Sunday", he said.

"Without a doubt, the next step in my career is to win in America, win a major". Inflammation where? "Everywhere", Woods said. "He was in bed".
