Rory McIlroy is usually a terrific putter, as it has helped him win numerous tournaments during his decorated career. However, the future Hall of Famer had some (really) tough luck around the green at the Monterey Peninsula Country Club during the Pebble Beach Pro-Am.
On hole 5, McIlroy had an eagle opportunity that was insanely long, and as one might expect, it is difficult to drain putts like that, and he did miss. After that, it seemed like he had a pretty easy putt for birdie but would miss that one as well.
Eventually, it would take FIVE putts for McIlroy to get out of there, after it looked like he was at least was going to get a par. It definitely was one of the worst putting displays on McIlroy’s career, although it will be completely forgotten soon of course.
With Rory being the player that he is, there’s no doubt his putting will be fine. This was just one of those “owie” kind of moments.
Chicago native Kevin Streelman and NFL legend Larry Fitzgerald would win the Pro-Am, while Ted Potter Jr., who always seems to hang around leaderboards, finally got another PGA Tour win by winning the main event. Pebble Beach is always a treat, and it’ll fun to see how things fare next year.
