What have they said?

Rory McIlroy: "Golf always just gives you another opportunity to go out and play well and to see if you've learned from your mistakes, and I've always made it a priority in my career to really try to learn from my mistakes, all the way back to what happened at Augusta in 2011 and going and winning the US Open at the next major.

"I had a few things fresh in my mind for a couple of months there, and I made sure if I ever got myself in a position like that again, I wasn't going to make the same mistakes."
