CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Rory McIlroy is confident a return to one of his favorite golf courses will end his winless streak on the PGA Tour.

It may be hard to fathom, but it's been a full year since the world's No. 3-ranked player last won on tour. McIlroy's last victory came here at the Wells Fargo Championship last May when he obliterated the field by seven shots to become the tournament's first two-time winner.

Despite shooting a tournament-record 21-under 267 here last year, McIlroy was never able to carry that momentum over to the rest of 2015 except for one win on the European Tour.
