Rory McIlroy has had his fun with the claret jug. Now it's time to put the British Open trophy away and get back to work.

McIlroy returns to competition this week at the Bridgestone Invitational. The final major of the year is next week at Valhalla. All he is thinking about is adding to what already has been a great year.

He wants to win a fourth major at the PGA Championship. He has never won a World Golf Championship. And he would like to get back to No. 1 in the world.

The 25-year-old from Northern Ireland says there is no temptation to celebrate the rest of the year. Based on his previous experience winning majors, McIlroy thinks this will lead to more victories this year.
