3 Shots: Rory’s Game In a Nutshell

Rory McIlroy shot a third-round 7-under 65, and is just one off the lead after 54 holes of the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship. These three shots, via videos from the European Tour, pretty much sum up Rory’s round (and game) in a nutshell.

Bing. Bang. Boom.

World No. 11? Please, son.


1. RORY’S POWER

On the par-4 11th hole Rory smokes a tee shot that is described as “an absolute monster.” We agree!


2. RORY’S PRECISION

On the par-4 14th hole Rory needs two shots to go 490 yards to four-feet of the pin. Sick stuff.


3. RORY’S TOUCH

After a bogey on the par-3 15th, Rory makes up for it with a chip-in birdie on the par-4 17th hole, and the Rory Roar!
