Rory McIlroy made a remarkable start to his second round at the PGA Championship on Friday, salvaging an unlikely par thanks to an incredible shot.
The Northern Irishman made a shaky start on his opening hole, the par-5 10th, as he sent second shot so far wide that even the PGA Tour’s shot tracker listed it as “unknown.”
With an unfortunate break sending his ball rolling down the cart path 80 yards from the hole, McIlroy had no other option but to try an audacious shot.
He punched his ball onto the cart path, sending it through the gallery, around the bunker and onto the green:
How did he do that?!?😲 @rorymcilroy Via📽@pgachampionship ・・・ #GolfObsession @golf.obsession ・・・ #WhayILoveThisGame #LifeWellPlayed #iLoveGolf #GolfIsLife #golfun #topgolf #golffunny #golfing #golfstagram #golfpro #trickshot #golfer #pga #golfaddict #golfgods #golfislife #progolfer #golf #golfr #golfgame
McIlroy’s ball rolled just off the back of the green and he got it up and down for par from there.
As part of the build-up to the 2018 Ryder Cup, captains Jim Furyk and Thomas Bjorn got the opportunity to do something very cool.
Team Germany timed their run to perfection with a stunning late surge on the final day of competition to claim the inaugural Costa Brava Euro Media Trophy.
