Like "The Lord of the Rings," "Star Wars," "Indiana Jones" and "Back to the Future," the Saga of Rory McIlroy's Chucked 3-Iron has become a trilogy.

The story so far from the Cadillac Championship at Doral's Blue Monster ...

FRIDAY: Club thrown | SATURDAY: Club retrieved

On Friday, McIlroy tossed the offending club into a lake parallel to the eighth hole after a mishit.

On Saturday, a scuba diver showed up, waded into the water and retrieved the club.

On Sunday, course owner Donald Trump walked out to the practice area where McIlroy was warming up and presented the world's top-ranked player with the missing 3-iron, saying "nobody should play with 13 clubs, that's unlucky."

LOST AND FOUND: The oddest things left on the course

Based on the snippets of conversation heard during the video, it sounds as if McIlroy will give the club back to Trump at the end of the tournament -- possibly to be placed on display at the course, or to be auctioned off for charity.
