Despite not winning a major championship for four years, Rory McIlroy seems to be getting back to his best form.
It really does seem hard to believe that the 2014 PGA Championship at Valhalla was the Northern Irishman's last win on the big stage, but he has threatened to be victorious numerous times since then.
McIlroy finished in fifth position at the following year's Masters Tournament, but would have to wait until this years Open Championship at Carnoustie to better that placing.
Along with Kevin Kisner, Justin Rose and Xander Schauffele, McIlroy finished tied for second place with a six-under-par score, showing some of the talent that won him many big titles in his early years.
There's no reason why McIlroy can't push himself back to the top of the rankings, with Dustin Johnson occupying the position currently, but there's huge competition now with the likes of Tiger Woods showing huge improvements to his game following a torrid few years.
McIlroy would have been hoping that this weekend's PGA Championship, the 100th event of it's kind, but the last few days haven't gone the way he planned.
A one-over-par round saw McIlroy lose all hope of becoming victorious though, and going into the final round, he was 10 shots behind leader Brooks Koepka.
And perhaps a video shown of the four-time major winner on the practice range before he started his round may have predicted how his Saturday was going to go.
As seen from the clip, Rory absolutely shanks a practice wedge shot far-right, so much so that it hits the expensive screen that displays the player's scores.
The slow-motion version of the incident looks even worse.
Don't worry Rory, it happens to the best of them.
Maybe the 2019 Masters will give the 29-year-old a new lease of life as he looks to end a barren spell when it comes to a major win.
