Rory McIlroy makes 55 consecutive putts: video

On the practice green before the final round of the TOUR Championship, Rory McIlroy was making putts. A lot of them.

Prior to the final round of the TOUR Championship, Rory McIlroy was practising on the putting green and he made 55 putts in a row from 10 feet.

There is some string evidence to suggest that this sort of non-random practice is not ideal and I’m not sure how beneficial something like this routine for any golfer – let alone the world’s number one golfer.

Still, it’s quite a feat. And most likely after Rory made 20 or so, he decided just to keep going to see how many he could make. Impressive all the same.

    The tour average may be 38% when they have an unpredictable putt that they’ve never had before in a tournament but surely not when just hitting from the exact same place over and over.

    Agreed K. It’s a great feat but not so sure it helps him a lot…

    It’s definitely an amazing feat. Just not as amazing as the commentators were making out. I really should try it one day. I’d be happy with anything over 10.
