Rory McIlroy somehow seemed unhappy with this 400-yard(!) drive that nearly found the green
On a day of low scoring at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship, including Romain Langasque matching the St. Andrews course with 61, Rory McIlroy probably felt more like Rory "Meh"cIlroy after posting a 68 at Carnoustie. That also might explain why he didn't seem too pleased with a 400-yard drive. Even though it nearly found the green on a par 4.
Obviously, the guy is pretty darn good at golf so he demands a lot of himself, but driving a 409-yard par 4 is a pretty high standard to have! And yet there was the four-time major champ going with a disappointed one-hand finish that would make Hideki Matsuyama proud. Have a look:
Talk about a perfectionist.
Then again, earlier in the week McIlroy drove the 18th hole at St. Andrews and made eagle.
So, yeah, he does have some pretty high standards.
Anyway, McIlroy is currently seven shots behind Langasque at the DP World Tour event, but he'll get another crack at that 18th hole and the rest of the Old Course on Saturday. Get your popcorn ready.
