Rory McIlroy has revealed an unusual thing has happened with his golf swing this week in that his go-to shot has now turned into a fade during the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth.
McIlroy two-putted the par-5 18th in the spotlights to card a 71 and narrowly play himself into the weekend on 1-under par.
As you can tell by his 36-hole score, McIlroy is nowhere close to his A-game in Virginia Water so far this week.
Much of that has been down to a number of shots ending up left of his target, particularly in the second round.
McIlroy pulled his short approach shot into the water on the par-4 8th, which led to a double-bogey six, and he then drove into the bushes way left down the par-5 12th, which led to a bogey on what is deemed one of the easier holes at Wentworth.
The World No.2 told a pool of reporters after his second round that his go-to shot has now become an unusual one for him this week.
