Nike To Release Limited Prototype Irons Designed By Woods, McIlroy

Imagine what a set of irons developed in part by Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods would look like. Now stop imagining because they’re real. And extremely limited. Nike teased golf fans when they showed off a prototype 2-iron that was used at the Open Championship, making us wonder if we could ever get our hands on one. On Wednesday, that dream became a reality (for a few) when they...

McIlroy Not Hung Up on Catching Jack; Almost Quit Golf at 16

Usually, the press conferences on the PGA Tour that precede that week’s tournament are boring. Nothing more than an “I like my chances this week,” or “The crew here does a wonderful job,” or “No, we’re really glad Tiger is back.” Most of the time, you don’t learn super interesting things — like the fact that Rory McIlroy almost gave up the game of golf at the...

Take a Look Inside Rory McIlroy’s Plush Pad

Not surprisingly, Rory McIlroy owns an extremely nice home. A few of them, probably, but one he’s shown off a bit is his mansion in Jupiter, Fla. – a town also known as “Golfer’s Paradise.” As part of its #DontSleepOnSummer campaign, Nike Golf sent out a few shots on Instagram over the weekend of Rory at said pad: Doing work in the home gym and barefoot on the backyard...

You Could Own Rory McIlroy’s Open Championship Ball

When Rory McIlroy sank his final putt on the 72nd hole to win the Open Championship, he did something I never thought a golfer would do. He threw the ball he used to win his third major championship into the crowd! (Gasp!) Of course, it was a gracious gesture by the 25-year-old but it’s the ball used to win a major. And one lucky fan got it, but didn’t keep it for long. After...

Rory McIlroy Has Fan In Gallery Tossed Out Of The Open Championship

Rory McIlroy was apparently being followed by a guy who was constantly coughing on purpose in his backswing and at the 16th tee he had enough. The fan was removed from the premises and rightfully so.

Rory McIlroy Calls Out Heckler At British Open, Has Him Ejected (Video)

Rory McIlroy wasn’t very fond of the fan who coughed during his back swing during the final round of the British Open on Sunday. He was quite angry, in fact, which is why he pointed out the fan to security on the 16th hole at Royal Liverpool. The unlucky fan was promptly escorted out. ...
