Watch: Rory McIlroy Hits Outrageous Eagle As He Chases Victory In South Africa

Watch: Rory McIlroy Hits Outrageous Eagle As He Chases Victory In South Africa
By Conall Cahill

A Rory McIlroy eagle gave an ominous sign of what could come in tomorrow's final round at the South African Open. McIlroy looks like he's in winning mood.

Rory McIlroy is absolutely tearing it up at the South African Open at the moment. Yesterday he hit nine straight one-putts, going through eleven holes in eight under par - which would have put him in the lead if it weren't for a few bogeys and a double bogey on his card as well.

Today, despite having problems with his lower back, McIlroy maintained his good form to sit three shots behind the tournament leader Graeme Storm with a score of -14 ahead of tomorrow's final round.

It will be tough for McIlroy to catch Storm. As James Corrigan reports for the Telegraph Storm hasn't dropped a shot in 41 holes and looks in brilliant form. But if Northern Ireland's finest can produce shots like the one he pulled out of the bag today on the seventh hole for eagle then he's bound to be close.

It's quite an amazing head-to-head between McIlroy, the world number 2 and multiple major winner, and Storm, who is ranked 251 in the world and only a couple of months ago thought he had lost his European Tour card.

McIlroy is looking in irresistible form, whatever about any injury. You wouldn't bet against him.
