He is already seen as the best golfer in the world and rightly so, but not even Rory McIlroy could have predicted that his tee-shot from the 14th at the Fedex Cup would be so unusual. He got to the 14th tee of  his tour Championship second round match being played out in in Atlanta and mis-hit his drive. The disappointed Rory was astonished to find, however, that his wayward tee shot had bounced  off a tree into the pocket of a bemused spectator in a genuinely rare freak accident. .

This drive at the 442yd par four caused  quite a few raised eyebrows and not a little chuckling in the crowd and the hapless Rory was not y penalized. He actually carried on to make par at that hole, currently leading at six under par in total and on course for the first time in his professional golfing career to win this Fedex Cup .
