DUBLIN, Ohio (AP) — Rory McIlroy intended to play both weeks at Muirfield Village. Instead, he stayed home an extra week in Florida and brought in his swing coach. McIlroy says he had not seen Michael Bannon since February, and it was time well spent. The world's No. 1 player is hardly in a slump. But he had seven straight events with nothing worse than a tie for fifth. And then after golf resumed, McIlroy hasn't finished in the top 10. He says Bannon was able to see a few minor things in person that he couldn't see on video.
