Instead of sneaking through the back entrance of the hotel, Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy went through the front door for a few photo ops. (Naturally, I took a picture of hotel guests and “Lao Hu” fans snapping shots.) Considering both are being paid several million for basically just showing up and pegging it with their pal, this wasn’t too much to ask. Hooray.

The world no. 1 and former world no. 1 are excited to play a friendly game of golf on Monday afternoon — as they often do in South Florida — which I’ll be covering live via TwitterInstagram and Facebook, etc. And no, The Match is not being televised live in the U.S., so you should be following me because most of you know how much I enjoy taking behind-the-scenes videos and pictures.
