The result meant McIlroy managed to make the top three of a Major for the third time since the start of 2022 – following his second at last year’s Masters and third at The Open.

But a first Major since his 2014 PGA Championship triumph continues to elude the Northern Irishman.

Yet despite failing to end his nine-year wait in California, McIlroy continued to take the positives from his performance.

Speaking to the media immediately after Clark’s victory, he said: “I’m getting closer. The more I keep putting myself in these positions, sooner or later it’s going to happen for me.

“I would go through 100 Sundays like this to get my hands on another major championship.

“When I do finally win this next major, it’s going to be really, really sweet.”

McIlroy also revealed he did not even watch Clark’s winning putt – which clinched the American his first Major championship.

He added: “I didn’t even need to wait for the tap-in.

“It’s just fine, fine margins at this level and at this tournament specifically, but I fought to the very end.”

McIlroy now heads to the Open Championship in four weeks time as he looks to produce a performance reminiscent of his 2014 victory.

Nine years ago, his score of 17 under saw him claim the title in Liverpool.

How To

Which are the best golf clubs I should have in my bag?

You should think about your golf game when selecting golf clubs. You should consider buying a higher-end model if you plan to play at least once per week or every weekend. If you are only going out for a few times a week, you might consider buying a set mid-range clubs. It all depends on how often you play and how much you are willing to spend.

A good set of woods is essential for anyone who hits a lot. These woods are extremely popular due to their accuracy and range. These clubs are made of titanium or stainless steel, which is why they are very durable. When purchasing any type of wood club you’ll also want to make sure that you get the right size head. A smaller head means you will have less forgiveness, while a bigger head will allow you to hit more shots.

A good putter is another important tool. This is something you’ll use frequently during practice sessions as well as tournaments. These are the two main options. A blade style putter is one option, while a mallet type putter is another. Blade style putters tend to be easier to learn and they allow you to feel the ball coming towards your face before striking it. Mallet style putters tend to be less flexible and require more skill to master.

You’ll need to have a variety of irons. There are many different types of iron sets available today. Some people prefer to buy a full set of irons and others like to purchase just their fairway woods and hybrids. You should test out many brands before making your final decision.

You want a wedge that matches your swing. If you are left-handed, you will need an offset wedge. However, if your swing is right-handed, you would want a straight through wedge.

You will need to decide whether you are a pull or fade hitter before you can choose a driver. Drivers that are heavier and more powerful than the norm are favoured by pull hitters. They are able to produce more torque and power behind a ball. Lighter drivers are preferred by fade hitters. They are more flexible and can produce more spin on a ball.
