Now we know why Rory McIlroy couldn’t buy a putt Sunday during the Tour Championship. He wasted them all on the practice green prior to the round.
Golf Channel caught McIlroy in a moment of true brilliance before Sunday’s showdown with Billy Horschel as the 25-year-old Northern Irishman drained 55 consecutive putts from what looks to be about 8-10 feet. He then misses No. 56, and Rich Lerner jokes that McIlroy failed to tie Joe DiMaggio’s record.
