Irish golf star Rory Mcllroy, 28, said he had to be dragged out of the house by wife Erica after spending a full week binge-watching television box sets such as 'Billions' and reading psychology books 'The Chimp Paradox' and 'Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less' following his final-round flop at The Masters.

"When I got back home, I sort of threw the clubs in a closet and I spent about a week decompressing and trying to get over it. I was binge-watching a couple of shows, I read a couple of books, drank a few bottles of wine - no not like that, not all at once! That sounds really bad. It wasn't that bad.

"She just said we're going to go out and do something. And once I got back into my routine, I was fine," he added.
