On the following hole, the final of the round, McIlroy found his way into a bunker short of the green. With an open stance, he popped it out onto the green and it rolled straight in.
Holing that bunker shot resulted in a 68 finish for McIlroy, leaving his two shots behind the leader. The DP World Tour Championship is the final event in the European Tour calendar, and it is the culmination of the Race to Dubai. After winning the event in 2014, McIlroy will be keen to retain his title.
