Rory McIlroy chipped in for eagle on the 8th hole at Augusta to briefly tie Patrick Reed for the lead on Saturday.
They say to win a major, you need to be both lucky and good. Rory McIlroy has been good thus far at Augusta, and he just got a pretty lucky break on the 8th hole.
McIlroy was already three under for his round when he got the par 5 and found the fairway with his drive, but he mis-hit his second shot and ended up well right of the green. That left a difficult chip, and McIlroy's effort was carrying a lot of speed as it raced toward the hole.
That's when it hit the flag dead center and fell in for an eagle-3.
McIlroy briefly tied Patrick Reed's lead with the eagle, but Reed made birdie soon thereafter to re-take the advantage. Still, a great break for McIlroy and a memorable eagle.
