Rory McIlroy hit his drive on the par 4 14th at The Tour Championship into a spectator’s pocket. The spectator was asked not to move while Rory and an official made their way to him to decide how to properly play the ball. Rory took a drop and then hit a nice wedge onto the green.

While the fan didn’t get to keep the ball that landed in his pocket, he did walk away with a very unique story, a handshake from Rory, and likely a souvenir of some sort.

Rory is currently tied for 5th at -1 and is 2 behind leader Jason Day at -3.
