Video: Rory McIlroy with an incredible shot from the water to save par

Rory McIlroy is back swinging a golf club at the USPGA in Whistling Straits and he has just produced the par of the tournament so far.

The Irishman is level par through five holes after an incredible par five at the fifth that saw him having to chip sideways out of a bunker and then play out of the water!

McIlroy found a terrible lie in the bunker off the tee before chipping out and hammering his third into the water off the edge of the green. He opted to pull the trousers up and chip from the wet stuff with an incredible result.

He holed the subsequent par putt to save par.
