Rory McIlroy played 10 immaculate holes at the World Golf Championship HSBC Champions on Friday before the wheels, while not exactly coming off, had a serious wobble in Shanghai.
As he stood on the 11th tee, he had hit 10 greens in regulation, made three birdies and never looked like dropping a shot. He had extended his two-shot overnight lead to three and was 10-under par.
The tough 456-yard par four lay ahead, having been the scene of his only bogey during his sumptuous opening day 65.
