Well, I've run out of fingers and toes on which to count.

While practicing before the final round of the Tour Championship at East Lake, Rory McIlroy made 55 consecutive putts from 10 feet. That's right, 55 in a row. 

That alone is an impressive accomplishment. When you see all 55 made in 44 seconds, it looks even more amazing. 

That video is just further proof of why Rory is the No. 1-ranked golfer in the world right now. 

In case you were wondering, Guinness World Records does not list an entry for most consecutive putts made. Maybe Rory should submit this video.

McIlroy entered the final round tied with Billy Horschel for the lead at 9 under. They were two shots clear of Jim Furyk.  

Want to be able to practice like Rory? We can't guarantee that you'll make 55 putts in a row, but this video should help you out.
