McIlroy had not played since winning the DP World Tour Championship in November, but the only evidence of that rust were two three-putt bogeys, each of which he immediately followed with a brace of birdies.

“It was a great way to start the year,” McIlroy said. “I felt in practice last week I was swinging well and I came back mentally fresh and excited to play again. I could not be happier.

Rory even received some serious high praise from no other than Jordan Spieth who said “It was a masterclass, the Rory that I have seen win major championships.”
