Rory McIlroy’s precision helped keep him from winning his third career DP World Tour Championship.
Leading by one at the par-4 15th, and following 335-yard drive, McIlroy’s 36-yard approach shot clanked off the flatstick and into a greenside bunker.
He failed to get up and down from there, while playing competitor Collin Morikawa made birdie on the same hole. The two-shot swing gave Morikawa an advantage he’d never relinquish.
McIlroy fell two strokes back after three-putting for bogey at the 16th hole.
Morikawa, meanwhile, birdied both Nos.
