Rory McIlroy Played The Shot Of The Tournament With Near Albatross

  • Rory McIlroy played a 3-wood into the par 5 18th during his second round.
  • He is tied 1st after fog delayed the third round of the Abu Dhabi Championship.

Rory McIlroy hit a sumptuous 3-wood 270 yards next to the flag and showed the golfing world why he’s special. Spieth is a machine with the putter, but when you watch Rory control shots from distance you know his ball striking is at another level.

Some players were unable to finish their third round as fog delayed the start of play by three hours. Here’s how they shape up after two (and a half) rounds.
