Even though Rory McIlroy had lost his lead and needed to hit the last hole to shoot even as a pair on Saturday at the Italian Open, Rory McIlroy had the big picture in mind.

It may have lasted just one hole Sunday at the Marco Simone Golf and Country Club when the world No. 2 doubled par-4 in the final group with Matthew Fitzpatrick and Aaron Rye. McIlroy hit his tee-off very correctly, missed the green on approach, hit a weak chip 50 feet from the flagstick, and eventually missed the 5-foot ball from the scarecrow.

While McIlroy hit six birdies and hit 3 for 68, a double early in the game proved the difference, with McIlroy finishing 12 under, two shots from the playoffs that Robert McIntyre won.
