McIlroy pulls off incredible shot to save par

Rory McIlroy made a remarkable start to his second round at the PGA Championship on Friday, salvaging an unlikely par after an incredible shot.

The Northern Irishman made a shaky start on his opening hole, the par-5 10th, sending his second shot so far wide that even the PGA Tour’s shot tracker listed it as ‘unknown’.

McIlroy’s ball rolled just off the back of the green. He got it up and down for par from there.

Amazing stuff.
