“Everybody talked about it over here. Rory is honest to a fault, that’s why we love him and listening to him.
“I get it but he was already one of the very best players in the world. Be that as it may, hopefully he can get back his other feel and other swing in time for The Masters.
“We know how talented this man is throughout the game. We know he has everything there is to have to be No 1 in the world and he’ll go down in history as a great, great player.
“It’s a lot mental and a lot of to do with confidence but the last couple of years have been a bit surprising to me that he hasn’t played better.
“He’s played some really good golf but I guess it’s a backhanded compliment – I think so much of his game and that he’s so good, personally I expect much more out of him than he can give. That’s my problem, not his.”
