"Last week in golf" is a look back at the compelling, funny, and often strange stories from around the golf world over the past seven days.
While Rory McIlroy was busy in South Africa playing in the Nedbank Golf Challenge, his real estate agent was busy taking a loss on his Florida mansion. It sold for $11.5 million, according to Golf.com, after being listed for $12.9 million. Bizjournals.com indicates McIlroy took a $1.25-million loss on the property. Better start winning again, Rory.

Members of the Champions Tour gave their best Fortnite dances a shot. Most of them, not surprisingly, are unrecognizable. However, Miguel Angel Jimenez does a decent "Floss" for a 54-year-old.
Gian-Marco Petrozzi was in the midst of qualifying for his European Tour card when he suffered a horrible ruling. As he was pacing out the yardage he walked through a bunker, which he raked afterward as any courteous golfer would. However, because he raked the sand before hitting his shot over said bunker, it was deemed he improved his line of play, a breach of Rule 13-2.
The two-stroke penalty prevented him from advancing to the final stage of qualifying.
Ashun Wu's caddie hated the idea of a high-risk, high-reward shot under a tree over water. Instead, he pleaded his case for Wu to pitch out and play for a bogey at the Nedbank Golf Challenge. Remember this the next time you're lining up an impossible shot.
