HONG KONG (AP)

World No. 1 Rory McIlroy has vowed to cut back his competitive schedule next year after the disappointment of missing the cut in his defense of the Hong Kong Open.

McIlroy four-putted the final green Friday to crash out of the event by three shots.

It was the second time this year the 23-year old has had to sit out the weekend rounds in the defense of a tournament after also missing the cut in June's U.S. Open at Sat Francisco.

Before leaving Hong Kong for Dubai, McIlroy said he's learnt a further lesson and will spend the coming weeks working out where he'll compete in 2013.

The Northern Irishman said, ''I now look back over the last couple of years wondering why did I stretch myself so much?''
