In case you missed it over the weekend, Frys.com Open winner Emiliano Grillo nearly smoked Rory McIlroy with a tee shot on the 296-yard, par-4 17th hole Saturday.
Not realizing the green hadn't yet cleared on the short par 4, Grillo ripped a tee shot just left of the green that came within inches of hitting McIlroy. You can see the video here (go to the 23-second mark):
McIlroy, who was having a difficult week with the putter, later joked that had the shot hit him, it would have "put me out of my misery."
Fortunately for Grillo, he overcame what could have been a bad situation to claim his first PGA Tour victory on Sunday in a playoff over Kevin Na.
"I didn't want to be the guy who almost hit Rory McIlroy this week," Grillo told the media after his win. "Kind of wanted to have this trophy and everybody know me because I have the trophy, and not because I almost hit him."
