Rory McIlroy Starts With Awesome Approach To Par-5

  • Rory McIlroy is making his debut at the Northern Trust Open at the Riviera Country Club, California.
  • The world number two is playing with Hideki Matsuyama and Matt Kuchar.

Rory McIlroy 3-wood

Rory has made a strong start at Riviera, the Northern Irishman is -2 after 3 holes and found his feet early with this sumptuous 3-wood approach. Rory loves soft conditions because he has the ability to hit long and high; that was nearly 600 yards of total carry in just two shots. Unreal!

This is one of the hardest course on tour. Bubba Watson showed us what kind of contours the players are forced to deal with.
