Watch: Incredible moment on the 18th at the Masters as Rory McIlroy potted a bunker shot for an unlikely birdie
It probably won’t be enough to win a green jacket, but Rory McIlroy enjoyed a spectacular final day at the Masters.
cIlroy scored 64 on the 18th with an eagle and a memorable birdie from the greenside bunker. The Northern Irishman celebrated passionately after the ball went down the hole.
The 32-year-old is second alone, but is well behind leader Scottie Scheffler.
“This tournament just keeps on amazing, and that’s the happiest I’ve ever been on a golf course,” McIlroy said after his 64th, by far the lowest final round in Masters history.
The 32-year-old felt his seven-under-par total was “a little short” but added: “I took a good chance and I couldn’t ask for anything more of myself.”
