World number one Rory McIlroy said he needed to rest and do some work on his putting after he crashed out of the $2 million UBS Hong Kong Open on Friday, failing to make the cut. 

World Number One golfer Rory McIlroy of Northern Ireland tees off during the second day of the UBS Hong Kong Open at the Hong Kong Golf Club. McIlroy's bid to become the first man in half a century to retain the $2 million UBS Hong Kong Open came to an embarrassing end as the world number one crashed out with a double-bogey.

The 23-year-old from Northern Ireland shot a disastrous two-over-par 72 in the second round that included a double-bogey on his final hole, ending his title defence in embarrassing failure.
