Warming up is a pretty important thing in golf. Professionals will occasionally arrive two hours before their tee times to hit balls, chip and roll some putts. As an old golf coach once said of warming up before your round, "You wouldn't go run five miles without stretching your legs, would you?"
Enter Rory McIlroy, the No. 1 golfer in the world, who was all set to play Keegan Bradley in his Sunday singles match at the Ryder Cup. Problem was, McIlroy's tee time was approaching, and the kiddo was nowhere to be found.
NBC first reported the missing superstar, and word eventually came out that McIlroy had been watching The Golf Channel on Saturday night and thought the tee times displayed were in Central time (Golf Channel was, of course, showing the times in Eastern time).
McIlroy rushed to the course, rolled a couple of putts and was up to the first tee without hitting a single ball. He was able to make par on the first hole and has been playing pretty well despite the rushed start.
