McIlroy demands improvements

Frustration was the overriding emotion for Rory McIlroy for the second year running as the 78th Masters headed for a typically tense climax at Augusta National.

McIlroy, who suffered the embarrassment of being outscored by his marker in Saturday's third round, carded a closing 69 to finish level par for the tournament and within sight of his best finish in the year's first major.

But the 24-year-old was again left wondering what might have been if not for a second round of 77 and a failure to convert enough birdie chances, especially on the par fives.

"It's been a frustrating week, because I felt like from tee to green I played as good as the leaders," McIlroy said.

"I don't think I've ever played as good tee to green around this course as I have this week. I just need to take some more chances that I've given myself on the greens."

After a bogey at the fourth, McIlroy carded birdies at the seventh, eighth, ninth and 11th, but bogeyed both par fives on the back nine.

"I finished even par on the par fives this week and even for the tournament and that's not good enough," the two-time major winner added.

"You are looking to play them in 10 under and that would be good enough to win.

"I will come back next year, try to putt a little better and play the par fives better and you never know."
