Rory McIlroy Displays Grit in Opening Round of PGA Championship

Posted : 17 May 2024

Rory McIlroy showcased resilience during the opening round of the PGA Championship in Louisville, Kentucky, finishing four shots behind the clubhouse leader with an impressive five-under par 66. Despite facing challenges, McIlroy, fresh off consecutive wins, navigated Valhalla Golf Club adeptly, tallying six birdies and a lone bogey.


Reflecting on his round, McIlroy acknowledged the scrappy nature of his performance but expressed satisfaction with extracting the most from his game. Beginning on the back nine, he started strongly with birdies on the par-five 10th and the par-four 13th, yet encountered setbacks with a bogey on the 17th after landing in bunkers.


McIlroy's resilience shone through as he salvaged par on the 18th hole with a remarkable recovery from a water hazard and capitalized on momentum with a birdie on the subsequent hole. Recognizing the significance of these pivotal moments, McIlroy emphasized their potential impact on his overall score, demonstrating his focus amidst personal distractions following his recent divorce announcement.
