Rory McIlroy 3 shots back at Korea Open
In his first tournament since the Tour Championship, Rory McIlroy is three shots off the lead at the OneAsia Tour’s Kolan Korea Open after a 1-under 70 in the first round.
He double bogeyed the par-3 13 before finishing with three birdies in three of his last five holes.
“I felt I was a little rusty after the four weeks off,” he said, “but I battled back nicely and to end up under par for the day wasn’t too bad.”
The world No. 6 is three back of leader Ik-jae Jang.
