Rory McIlroy Threads Incredible Recovery Shot Between Trees at PGA Championship

By Anthony Blake

The PGA Tour likes to say “these guys are good”, but somehow even that doesn’t do justice to what Rory McIlroy pulled off during the second round of the PGA Championship at Quail Hollow.

On the par-five 10th hole, McIlroy found himself in jail down the cart path yet still managed to get his shot onto the green from an impossible spot.

Just for a little more perspective…

Rory made par from here.

Par really is one heck of a score from a location like that.

McIlroy is sitting at two-over par currently, but anything can happen on the weekend, meaning he’s far from out of this tournament at a venue where he’s won twice and lost in a playoff one other time.
