Hold up
Heading into the final round at PGA National, Rory McIlroy held a two-shot lead — and through seven holes, he had a three-stroke advantage over the closest competitor. McIlroy seemed destined to successfully convert a wire-to-wire victory at the Honda Classic on Sunday.

Rory McIlroy said on Tuesday that the par-4 drivable 15th could be a big “turning point” in a match. Well, he ended up conceding the hole to Boo Weekley after hitting an errant drive that left his ball pinned up against a rock in the desert.

Wozniacki watches McIlroy from inside the ropes in China in 2011
Unlike the rule applied to every other WAG (wives and girlfriends) — with the exception of team events like the Ryder Cup and the Presidents Cup — tennis pro Caroline Wozniacki often walks inside the ropes with her now-fiancee Rory McIlroy.
