A duel against Tiger Woods might have been just the thing that got McIlroy going, and his golf swing, and putting stroke, seemed to be locked in at the final World Golf Championship event of the year. McIlroy opened with a round of 7-under 65, carding eight birdies and looking in total control of his game all day at the Sheshan International Golf Club in China.
Rory leads a pretty salty leaderboard by two shots heading into the second round, and below are some highlights of his opening round at the HSBC Champions.
