Did his best to mess it up at 18. He was quality for 71 holes.
Was quality for 72 holes - just some of it was high quality, some was low quality.

First round wasn't high quality.

Last hole was poor first shot, but recovery was quality - ie, decision making was quality - took the best option.

It's as well though it was the last hole and he had that two shot lead - at least he knew he could take a drop, lose one shot and still win. If it was earlier in the round, or an earlier round, he might have been tempted to play the shot and might well have done alright, but equally could have ended up dropping 2 or even more.

All ifs, buts and maybes now though. Well played Rory. :fleg:

I was hoping some of the golfing nerds may have gleaned some clues from the length of his mashie niblick or summat :scratch: :lol:
Haven't heard them called niblicks before, but mashed niblick might account for the way he's standing - right leg slightly raised , leg bending in towards his mashed niblick. :shock:

PAINFUL!! :shock:

From the pictorial evidence, neither of them got their hole.

Looks like Arlene is wearing golf shoes. Does she play? She'll have a lot more time for it now.

I understand from recent social media posts that Michelle does indeed play around now and again!
