Since the Coronavirus pandemic put the PGA Tour season on halt last month, we’ve heard a lot about Rory McIlroy’s Peloton prowess. But when it came time for the four-time major champ to finally dust off his clubs while under quarantine to hit a few golf balls, well, the process was just like riding a bike as well.

McIlroy shared a couple videos on Tuesday of him practicing for the first time since we last saw him at the Players Championship in March. And in what should be mid-season, that flowing, powerful swing looked like it was still in mid-season form for the PGA Tour’s planned June restart. Have a look:
Man, is that a sight for sore eyes.
McIlroy’s timeline of “nearly 7 weeks” seems to indicate it’s the first time he’s hit balls since an opening 72 at TPC Sawgrass on March 12. But the World No. 1 was happy to report, “Still got it thankfully.”
Golf fans are thankful as well, because it looks like Rory will still be pursuing a green jacket this fall—instead of focusing on cycling for a yellow jersey.
