Watch: McIlroy dunks it from fairway, damages cup


In some potentially bad news for the United States, Rory McIlroy has apparently picked up where he left off at the Tour Championship.

The FedEx Cup champion propelled himself to an $11.53 million payday last weekend thanks in large part to an eagle hole-out from the 16th fairway in Sunday's final round.

And while getting in some last-minute practice on Thursday before the start of the Ryder Cup, McIlroy ruined the hole at the par-5 sixth for everybody else.

McIlroy owns a 5-4-5 record in Ryder Cup play. Europe is a perfect 3-0 with him on the team since 2010.
