McIlroy won the 3rd round of the DP World Tour (formerly European Tour) Hero Dubai Desert Classic (total prize money of 9 million dollars), which continued at the Emirates Golf Club (par 72, 7428 yards) in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE) on the 29th (local time). He hit 7 under par and took the top of the leaderboard (15 under par, 201 strokes). The event was postponed by one day due to bad weather, so the winner will be announced on the 30th.
McIlroy overpowered his opponent in an accompanying round with LIV golf player Bernd Wiesberger (Austria). McIlroy started from a tie for seventh place by two strokes and swept eight birdies (one bogey). With 4 consecutive birdies on holes 1 to 4, he succeeded in overpowering the baseline. Then, three consecutive birdies on holes 13 to 15 and another birdie on hole 17 (par 4) were added. The bogey on the last 18th hole (par 5) was ‘Oke Ti’.
McIlroy powered by an exciting long hit of 311 yards on average and a ‘punch iron shot’ with a 77.8% green hit rate. The number of putts per hole was outstanding at 1.5. McIlroy took the lead by 3 strokes and took the opportunity to win his 15th DP World Tour career four years after winning the HSBC Champions in the World Golf Championship (WGC) Series in March 2019. McIlroy cheered, saying, “I have a good start of the year,” and “I have a chance to win.”
