Rory McIlroy, who is looking to become just the sixth player to complete the career grand slam by claiming a first green jacket this week, holed out with a seven iron from 170 yards. He was playing a match against Chris Wood today during the practice round at Augusta and finished it off on the 16th hole with that ace and a 3&2 to end it.


“I don’t think I have ever heard a roar that large in a practice round,” the four-time major winner said of the reaction from the crowd. “It was great. It was a nice practice round and a bit of a highlight. And it ended the match as well.


McIlroy has been struggling a bit this season and opted out of the Par 3 contest to prepare for this week. He also came out with a Nike commercial that shows his daily routine that gets him pumped and ready. It looks like both have payed off.


“I played well. I feel like my game is in good shape.”


Could Rory be the next Masters winner?? That ace sure makes me think so.
