Rory McIlroy may not have won the Arnold Palmer Invitational this weekend, but he sure won in the competition for best finish. McIlroy came in 26th in the tournament down at Bay Hill in Orlando, but ended his weekend by sinking a 59-foot putt for birdie.
Even he seemed surprised that he did it.
His birdie topped off a day where the Irishman was knocking down putts from anywhere and everywhere on the way to a 65-stroke day.
It’s too bad the first two rounds didn’t go that way.
Putts made today:
• 59 feet
• 32 feet
• 20 feet
• 20 feet
• 14 feet
145 feet in total.

Overall McIlroy finished six under, but had an incredible last day, shooting seven under.
The invitational is still going on, with Australian Justin Day in a three way tie for first place with Swede Henrik Stenson and American Kevin Chappell.
Question is, how much does McIlroy practice 60-foot putts? Is that what’s missing from my game?
