Apparently, Rory McIlroy decided to heed Gary Player’s advice! Kidding.
Leave it to Wozzilroy to spice up the news (a massive thank you, by the way!) during golf’s version of the “off-season.”
After Rory McIlroy opened with a 66 at the DP World Tour Championship — which he followed on Friday with a 67 to share the 36-hole lead with Luke Donald — he took the podium for what he thought would be the usual post-round press conference with the usual mundane questions.
Well, if you’ve ever thought some of our inquiries were awkward or annoying, then clearly you’ve never witnessed a significant other commandeering the microphone to interrogate a player about your Christmas present in front of the world media, no less.
Rory McIlroy rolled in a birdie on the 72nd hole of the HSBC Champions, which proved to be a valuable stroke. His tie for fourth in Shanghai boosted him past Lee Westwood in the world rankings from No. 3 to No. 2 this week.
I guess that’s what you call a power couple!
