VIDEO: Rory McIlroy shoots a quadruple bogey at the Memorial
Just when the defending US Open champion thought his form could not get any worse.

RORY McILROY WILL want to forget this one.

Having admitted that his form leading up to the defence of his US Open title has been rather, well, disgusting, the Holywood golfer was hoping to get himself back in the swing (sorry) of things at the Memorial.

We’re fairly sure that hitting a quadruple bogey on the 12th hole was not part of his plan.

The 23-year-old hit his tee to the bunker, before finding the water, taking a drop, finding another bunker and eventually the hole.

McIlroy had started on the back nine so that was only his third hole of the round. He did manage to turn things around impressively, finishing his round on a one-under-par 71.
