Rory McIlroy, on January 24, missed the chance to win again when he finished third with a -13 at the opening event of the European Tour 2021 season.
Yesterday, McIlroy was in the top 5 for the ninth time, but did not win over 11 times to attend the HSBC Championship. In terms of performance at the Abu Dhabi tournament, McIlroy finished fourth, four times finished third, and a top 5 final.
Before that, golfer every 106 weeks at number one in the world had the opportunity to be crowned podium this year. He kept the top of the board, also scoring -13 after 54 holes, taking a one-stroke lead over Tyrrell Hatton. On the closing day, both started their last round, from hole 1.
“I entered good with two birdies through the first three holes. Then the story went bad after a few shots hit by the wind, like three putt on the green of hole 4. Then, add two bogeys in the turn. The good ones are the bad ones. I need to play more steadily, “McIlroy said of the blistering final round.
In the first round, a competitor born in 1989 hit 64 sticks, leading the team for the title of 132 golfers. On the second day, he beat 72 sticks and lost this position to Hatton. In the penultimate round, McIlroy got back the top thanks to 67 strokes. But on the finish line, McIlroy considered “break even” for 72 strokes on par72. England had four birdies and two bogeys, split equally in each half.
“The first day is good, the next day not. The third day is good and the last day is lost. You want to win but you can’t,” field commentator Wayne Reilly of the station Sky Sports about McIlroy’s erratic performance. Reilly followed McIlroy 72 holes. Owners of four major in 18 PGA Tour championships and 14 European Tour trophies are currently seventh in the world (OWGR) and have been without title for 15 months.
