RORY McIlroy headed to the swimming pool after crashing out of the Turkish Airlines World Golf Final.
McIlroy had to settle for ‘just’ USD 300,000 after finishing last in the eight-man exhibition on Thursday.
“I’ve got an afternoon by the pool, I don’t mind,” McIlroy said.
“I knew I was going to have an afternoon off anyway so I was just going out and playing. I never really had any expectations.”
McIlroy will have next week off and hopes to join Caroline Wozniacki at her tournament in Moscow if he can get a visa, before concentrating on protecting his lead at the top of the European money list.
“I have still got some big events left and I would love to win the Race to Dubai so I am going to give it one last push,” added McIlroy.
“It has been a great season and I am ready to be done. It is just such a long season these days.”
