Rory McIlroy struggled at the RBC Heritage in South Carolina, his second tournament after the Masters. McIlroy found his ball slightly off the green on the sixteenth hole, and he set up to make sure he could chip the ball easily close to the pin.


McIlroy took a measurement of the distance before gently chipping the ball in the hopes of making contact with the green. Rather, he did not swing with enough force, and the ball only traveled a few feet ahead of him before landing where he had intended.


Additionally, it looked as though the ball struck a divot in the grass, as it momentarily bounced and headed toward McIlroy’s left, a little distance from his position. That hole proved to be McIlroy’s only bogey of the day. He had three total.


Though there was a brief moment of annoyance, the golfer seemed to be recovering from a poor performance at Augusta. With six birdies and three bogeys in three rounds, he is tied for 12th place after shooting 68 on Saturday.


Notable was McIlroy’s nearly flawless approach to the eighth hole, which was played from 195 yards out. After hitting a ball in the green with his second stroke, McIlroy’s ball narrowly missed the hole, leaving the 34-year-old stunned that the ball had not gone in and the spectators thrilled by what they had just witnessed.


Among McIlroy’s birdies of the day were those on holes two, three, five, twelve, and fifteen. The fact that McIlroy has altered his gear for the RBC Heritage may be the reason for his recent shift in style.

It’s evident that Rory McIlroy is disappointed with his difficulties.


McIlroy, who was unsuccessful in his attempt to win a green jacket, added the TaylorMade BRNR Moini Driver Copper 13.5-degree club to his collection. He used a Qi10 3-wood, which he replaced with the new club at Augusta.


The 34-year-old chose to use his Qi10 for the Masters in place of the mini-driver, which he has been utilizing at earlier competitions including the Valero Texas Open. McIlroy feels he will be utilizing the driver more as he becomes more accustomed to it, even if he only used it infrequently during the competition.


“After Friday’s session, I actually think I only hit it three times,” the celebrity remarked. “I didn’t hit it today due of the way the wind was blowing from the south; on a few holes, I hit 5-wood off the tee in practice, and on a couple of other holes, I hit mini in the practice round and then hit driver since the wind was into those holes. But the club is excellent. It is adaptable. Over the following few days, I’m sure I’ll utilize it a lot.”



Following his most recent Masters defeat, Rory McIlroy has revealed his plan to end his 10-year major drought.

McIlroy seems ready to succeed at RBC with the new gear and what appears to be a fresh strategy. He is six strokes off the lead going into the last round, held by Scottie Scheffler.


The top player in the world, Scheffler, has acknowledged that he was “emotionally drained” after winning the Masters and that he might make a mistake on the last day. “As the round was going on, I was feeling like I was making excellent putts and playing well, but I was becoming a little impatient with my pace. He remarked, “I was out on some of my reads.


Given Scheffler’s mental exhaustion, now might be the ideal moment for McIlroy to take action and change his trajectory.
