McIlroy wins Euro Tour shot award

Rory McIlroy has won the European Tour's shot-of-the-month award for the second time in a row.

During the Irish Open at Killarney McIlroy hooked a sand-wedge 50 yards around a tree to within 12 feet of the flag.

Voted second was Darren Clarke's 18-foot eagle putt on the final day of The Open, and third was a five-iron by Alex Noren as he captured the Nordea Masters in Sweden.

In June McIlroy topped the poll after almost holing-in-one during his US Open triumph.
