Rory McIlroy swing sequence, introduction
Generously listed at 5-foot-10 (he’s probably closer to 5’8”), Rory McIlroy doesn’t cut an imposing figure on the tee. Unless you happen to be the one paired with him. Arguably the game’s best driver, McIlroy put on another dazzling driving display at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, launching a 373-yard moonshot on the par-5 16th hole. That led to an easy two-putt birdie, part of a stretch of five birdies in six holes, helping him shoot an 8-under-par 64 and end an 18-month winless drought on the PGA Tour.
