Watch: McIlroy makes 79-foot birdie bomb

RSS

Rory McIlroy traded birdies and bogeys all day in a 1-over round of 73 Saturday, but he walked off the course on a high note thanks to this 79-foot, bending birdie make at the par-3 17th.

The birdie at 17 and a par at 18 got McIlroy into the clubhouse at 1 under for the week and likely out of the mix in his bid to defend his last U.S. title.
