AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) - Rory McIlroy says he's finally comfortable with his new brand of golf clubs. More important, he finally feels good about his game.

McIlroy is prone to mini-slumps, and he picked the wrong time for his latest one. He started the season with a new contract with Nike and all eyes on him as the No. 1 player. He stumbled so badly that he added an extra tournament to get ready for the Masters.

He finished second last week in the Texas Open. He says he's no longer thinking about his swing, only his score.

McIlroy had been considered the favorite at Augusta National until Tiger Woods returned to No. 1 in the world with three wins in his last five tournaments.
