AKRON, Ohio - Three-time major champion Rory McIlroy has set his sights on Adam Scott's world No.1 spot as he returns to competitive golf after his British Open triumph.

The Northern Irishman is refusing to dine out for too long on being just a Masters win away from a career grand slam, promptly setting his sights on this week's World Golf Championships Bridgestone Invitational at Firestone Country Club.

While Scott has form at the venue, having won the event in 2011, McIlroy is confident he can win his first WGC title and wrestle top spot from the Australian. McIlroy would return to the top spot for the fifth time in his career if he is victorious and Scott finishes outside the top five, his first return to the top since March 2013.
