Watch: McIlroy duffs pitch, then chips in for par

Rory McIlroy has had a rather eventful week thus far at Pebble Beach.

The four-time major winner four-putted on Friday at Monterey Peninsula - it would have been a five-putt but his first attempt was from off the green - and hit another uncharacteristically poor shot Saturday when he flubbed a downhill pitch from the rough at the par-4 eighth at Pebble.

And somehow, because golf doesn't make any sense at all, he followed a duff with this difficult save for par.

Yep, same guy.

McIlroy didn't make a par for five holes on his front nine - playing Nos. 2-6 in plus-1 with two birdies and three bogeys - and made the turn in 2-over 38.
