Looks like Rory McIlroy didn’t hit the vineyards last night, if this drive is anything to go by.

The 10th hole at Silverado Resort & Spa is a par 4 measuring 411 metres, but the Northern Irishman shortened it considerably with a blistering 320m drive that ran through the fairway and into the rough.

His score on that hole? A disappointing par.

McIlroy carded a 1-under par 71 today, bringing his 36-hole total to 5-under and six shots behind leader Brendan Steele.

The US PGA Tour is in California’s renowned Napa Valley wine region this week for the season-opening Frys.com Open, and the world No.3 admitted that the local vineyards were tempting.
