Ohio: The 22-year-old from Northern Ireland spoke to PGA Tour officials Wednesday morning and said he would start looking for a place to live in Florida - either Orlando or the West Palm Beach area - after the PGA Championship next week.
"I feel I play my best golf over here," McIlroy said. "I'm very comfortable in this country. Yeah, I'm definitely looking toward coming back and playing a full schedule."
Taking up his tour card next season would mean playing at least 15 events on the PGA Tour in 2012.
