Margins were slim on Sunday, with the two taking turns taking the lead as the game trailed. There were elements of poise and winning in McIlroy’s grip as he made birdies with great confidence midway through the round.

There was a turning point in Northern Ireland’s game on the 15th hole: a wrong club choice resulted in the tee shot going long into the wasteland, leading to a bog. On the next hole, it began to show in stark fashion what kind of pressure a long streak without a major tournament had created for McIlroy. The second consecutive bogey came after he missed an easy par putt from close range.

The situation was even on the last hole, and the possibility of a replay hung in the air. McIlroy opened slightly left but saved par without much difficulty. However, the nervous star player missed another short par putt and it went in favor of the opponent who came in the last group.
