Rory McIlroy shot 68 to finish the Masters Tournament at 5-under par. He hit only 58 percent of fairways and 62 percent of greens in regulation during the tournament.

He needs a Masters win to complete the career Grand Slam, but he wound up tied for 21st.

“I think I played the par-5s in 11‑under for the week. I must have played the par-3s in about even or even a bit under par (he was 1-under),” he said. “So it was really the par-4s. And that's just putting myself out of position off the tee. And then once you get yourself out of position it's very hard to put yourself back in position. You miss greens, trying to get it up and down, you put pressure on yourself."
