  • Rory McIlroy Swings and Misses on a Chip from the Rough (Video)

    Rory McIlroy Swings and Misses on a Chip from the Rough (Video)

    Take note, amateur duffers. Even guys sponsored by Nike in nifty lime green-accented outfits have their crappy shots. Rory McIlroy swung and missed entirely on #9 at the Players Championship on Saturday. He whiffed on the ball, but it did move slightly. Like an inch. Which means it’s a stroke against him. Flop shots are […]

  • The 5 Worst (And 4 Best) Aspects of The Masters

    The 5 Worst (And 4 Best) Aspects of The Masters

    To say The Masters is a divisive sporting event would be an epic understatement. The biggest tournament in golf, the one most rooted in tradition, gets called to task by critics for exemplifying aspects of exclusivity, elitism, and good ole’ fashioned bigotry. And it’s hard to argue with the evidence. Black members and women have been late additions to […]

    Nike Honors Tiger Woods With Rory McIlroy Commercial (Video)

    With the 2015 edition of The Masters set to kick off at Augusta National Golf Club on Thursday, now seems like the perfect time for Nike to start rolling out their Rory McIlroy commercials. And that’s exactly what they are doing, beginning with this one which honors Nike’s other big name golfer, Tiger Woods. The commercial […]

    There are certain people that are inextricably linked to the video games they sponsor. For instance, John Madden has been retired for about a decade, but any other spokesperson for the Madden NFL video games would just feel…weird. How do I know? Because EA Sports just made the announcement that they’ve pulled the ailing Tiger Woods […]

    Watch Angry Rory McIlroy Throw His Club Into The Water (Video)

    Rory McIlroy shot a second round score of 70 (2-under), putting him at one-under-par at the WGC-Cadillac Championship.  That leaves him in a tie for 13th after 36 holes, ten back of current leader J.B. Holmes (who is on the 18th hole as of this writing). For the two-time PGA Player of the Year, that clearly isn’t good […]

    PGA employee Erica Stoll, 27,  is the latest to add her name to the growing list of Rory McIlroy girlfriends since the world’s number one golfer broke off his engagement with former tennis star Caroline Wozniacki. Stoll’s official job title is Manager of Championship Volunteer Operations at the PGA of America, but she is best known for […]

    Rory McIlroy Champagne Bottle Goes Off Prematurely (Video)

    The Rory McIlroy champagne bottle took on a life of its own at the Ryder Cup. You would think that McIlroy, who has had some success in the the world of sports, would know a thing or two about champagne etiquette. Also, he’s European. I thought Europeans were taught how to treat wine and champagne […]
