After throwing away the #3 wooden stick, McIlroy went home to find a replacement in stock, then used it in the first round of the BMW Championship and made it to the top of the table at -8.
The tournament kicked off on August 26 with a $9.5 million prize fund at Caves Valley, par72 in Maryland.
In the opening round, McIlroy hit 64 strokes, including an eagle, seven birdies and a bogey. This match, he averaged 318.2 yards, missed only one fairway and went to the green according to the standard 13 holes.
McIlroy went from hole 1, scored round 6 at the end of hole 15. On the par5 16 hole, McIlroy played 311 yards, added 287 yards with a 3 wood (3-wood) and then scored an eagle from a 3.3 meter putt.
It was McIlroy’s first eagle over 516 holes in the FedEx Cup playoff series.
“The number 3 tree I’m using is new but old. Actually, I used it last year, then kept it in the garage. Now it’s effective again,” McIlroy said. Golf Channel.
Before the BMW Championship, McIlroy lacked in the Northern Trust. In the last round of the tournament, on August 23, he was not satisfied with his professional performance, so he dropped the 3-wood near the teeing ground of the 9th hole, then finished T43.
After the event, the Northern Irish golfer returned to his home in Florida and rummaged through the old club inventory. He found three weapons for the BMW Championship, including 3-wood, driver and putter.
As for the driver, McIlroy had to try out many new shafts and clubheads because the previous one created a lot of spin, which made the ball go unsatisfactory. As for the putter, he uses a TaylorMade Spider with a “mallet” style instead of the traditional “blade” design at the Northern Trust.
After 18 holes of the BMW Championship, McIlroy ranked T1, next to world number one (OWGR table) Jon Rahms and Sam Burns. Yesterday, both of these players scored eight birdies and no bogey.
McIlroy a total of 106 weeks at the top of the OWGR, winning four majors in 19 PGA Tour championships, including the most recent title at the Wells Fargo Championship in May and ending 553 days of “thirst for the Cup”. But around that victory was a flurry of form – four eliminations, including the major Masters and mid-range performance in two equal events including the T49 PGA Championship and T46 The Open.
And because of erratic form, McIlroy is this week in 16th OWGR. This is the lowest position for a player born in 1989 since November 2009, when he was nearing the end of two years as a professional.
