It might have taken a trip to the other side of the world, but Rory Mcllroy managed to record his best finish of 2013 this weekend at the OneAsia Tour's Korean Open.
The Palm Beach Gardens resident shot a final round 67 to finish in a tie for second, one shot behind winner Kang Sung-hoon. Mcllroy bounced back from a rough round Saturday to get back in tournament contention on Sunday. His final round 67 was the lowest round of the day and was only one shot off of the low round for the tournament.
While the Bears Club member struggled for most of the 2013 PGA Tour season, he has shown signs of light at times. He recorded five top 10s on the PGA Tour in 2013 and still has several opportunites to record his first win of 2103. After a one day exhibition with Jupiter Island resident Tiger Woods, Mcllroy will compete in the BMW Masters followed by the WGC-HSBC Championship and the season ending DP World Tour Championship on the Eurpoean Tour.
