Rory McIlroy has stressed his aim for 2013 is to add to his major haul, with the Masters and Open Championship in his sights.

McIlroy is golf's star name and a superb 2012 saw him move a long way clear at the top of the world rankings.

He claimed a brilliant win at the US PGA Championship to secure his second major and it is the top events that he will be targeting in 2013.

"It is something I have thought about," he said. "I've got the Masters and the Open still to win to try and get that.

"I said at the start of this year that if I didn't win a major I would be disappointed and going into next year I will say the same.

"If in 2013 I don't win a major I will be disappointed. But I just want to contend more in the majors next year."
