Rory McIlroy Drops F-Bomb After Errant Tee Shot

World number one Rory McIlroy put the RBS Heritage’s coronavirus issue to one side to shoot a third-round 66 and significantly improve his position at Hilton Head in South Carolina.

The Northern Irishman was one of the players to have contact with Nick Watney on Friday shortly before the American tested positive for Covid-19 and withdrew from the event.

McIlroy followed his second-round 65 with a five-under 66 to move to 10 under, three behind early clubhouse leader Joaquin Niemann.

However he did have on hiccup in the third round, dropping an F-Bomb after an errant tee shot:

McIlroy carded six birdies, including four on his back nine, with his one dropped shot coming at the par-four 13th.

But this F-Bomb will be his most unforgettable shot of the day.
