DORAL, Fla. (AP) - Donald Trump made sure Rory McIlroy had 14 clubs in the bag for the final round of the Cadillac Championship.

Trump had a scuba diver retrieve the 3-iron that McIlroy heaved into the water left of the par-5 eighth hole during the second round Friday. McIlroy played with only 13 clubs in the third round, saying he really didn't need a 3-iron.

A replacement club was shipped to the world's No. 1 player on Sunday morning before the final round. The Donald made a show of it on the practice range. He took the club to McIlroy and announced to the crowd that "13 is an unlucky number."

McIlroy said he would return the club to Trump after the round for it to be displayed or sold to charity.
