Tensions and emotions ran high on Friday in the final round at Plantation Preserve Golf Course & Club in Plantation, Florida (near Fort Lauderdale), one of the six sites around the country holding the second stage of the PGA Tour qualifying tournament, known fondly as “Q-school.”

Rory, who fell victim to the Bear Trap in the second round last year, is currently tied for second. He’s had his eye set on reaching No. 1 in the world rankings and like last week, he has the chance to topple Luke Donald from the throne with a win.
