Who needs a sand save statistic when you can do this instead?
Rory McIlroy found himself in the greenside bunker at the par-4 10th hole Saturday -- some 35 feet from the hole -- during his match with Japan's Hideki Matsuyama. He had just given back a hole at the ninth, and this could have been a pivotal point in the match.
Instead, watch what happens:
McIlroy went on to win the hole, and eventually the match by a score of 6 and 5, moving the world's No. 1 player in the Cadillac Match Play quarterfinals.
Unfortunately for Rory, it also means he probably won't get to use the tickets he bought for Saturday night's Manny Pacquiao-Floyd Mayweather Jr. fight in Las Vegas.
