Rory McIlroy's crib

Watch world number 3 Rory McIlroy show off his crib.

Limpopo - Heinrich Bruiners liked the course at Euphoria Golf Estate so much that he said it almost felt like cheating as he marched to his commanding five-stroke victory in the R600 000 Vodacom Origins of Golf event there on Friday.

“It’s a lot like the course I learned my golf on at Fancourt,” said Bruiners after his maiden victory as a professional.

“I’m thinking of my father at this time,” he said a little tearfully afterwards.

“I’d felt so pumped by the birdie on nine, so it was disappointing to make the bogey on 10,” he said.

“I watched the other guys using three-wood off the tee on 12, but I stuck to my three-iron like I did all week,” he said.

“I had a chat with a buddy as we arranged to get to the next pre-qualifier together,” he said.

That’s because he’s exempt into all Sunshine Tour events until the end of 2014.
