Rory McIlroy cut a much happier figure after a closing, bogey-free 65 secured him a top 10 finish in the WGC-Cadillac Championship at Doral.

Following last-week's controversial walk-off in the Honda Classic and poor early-season form, McIlroy was under tremendous scrutiny going into the season's second World Golf Championship event.

But after an uncertain start to the week, McIlroy's fast finish saw him post a total of 10-under-par and a tie for eighth place.

"I feel a lot better. Regardless of the score, I hit a lot of good shots over the last three days," he told Sky Sports.

"I am really happy compared to the start of the week although there is still a bit to go. I made a lot of birdies and eagles this week so it is a case of limiting the mistakes."

McIlroy revealed he will not alter his playing schedule in the build-up to The Masters at Augusta, with just one tournament - the Shell Houston Open at the end of this month - on the agenda.

"I am excited about the next few weeks but I will keep the schedule the way it is," said the world number one.

"It will be a couple of weeks of hard work and then Houston before going on to Augusta."
