Rory McIlroy defeated Keegan Bradley in their singles match when Europe fought back in Medinah

Rory McIlroy says to return to Medinah for the first time since the 2012 Ryder Cup "will resurrect some good memories".

The world number three hit Thursday in Illinois after four shots behind winner Patrick Reed in the first FedEx Cup play-offs.

Seven years ago, Medinah organized one of the most memorable sporting comebacks of recent times, as a remarkable final day saw Europe retain the trophy.

"Medina has some good memories for me," said McIlroy.

"I didn't know it then, but it was where I met my wife for the first time.

" It was an incredible Ryder Cup with everything that happened there. "

In what became known as the & # 39; Miracle at Medinah & # 39; led the US 10-6 after two days, only needed four and a half points from Sunday's singles to win]

McIlroy , who arrived on the track just 10 minutes before his turn time, Keegan beat Bradley 2 & 1 while Europe won eight and joined one of the 12 games.

"We're kind of excited to be back there all year come. If I play how I played in Medinah that week, I would be very happy, "said McIlroy.

" I played great golf. "

& # 39; The good things are in there & # 39;

McIlroy shot five bogeys and seven birdies in a final round of 69 at The Northern Trust on Sunday, and is now sitting third in the FedEx Cup rankings behind Brooks Koepka and Reed.

The four-fold big winner achieved a substandard score in each of the four rounds, including a 65 on the first day.

"Even if I don't play that well, I can still get myself into a little conflict, "McIlroy said.

" Even if part of my game is off, I am a bit of a deal with other parts of my game, whether it is driving, chipping or moving.

"The good stuff is in it; I just hit too many loose shots and they cost me.

" I don't think it's frustrating not winning the tournament, the fru strating thing is just not completely in control of what I do there. "
