Masters 2015: Rory McIlroy happy with start to title bid

Rory McIlroy says he is happy with his solid start to the Masters after an eventful one-under-par 71 left him four shots behind the clubhouse leaders at Augusta.

"It could have been better but it could have been worse. It's a decent score given some of the difficult positions I put myself," said McIlroy.

"It's nice to get going in the tournament and I'll try to be as patient as I can," added the world number one.
