Rory McIlroy and Rickie Fowler exchanged cool tweets on Sunday
The British Open and PGA Championship have come down to two of golf's best young players. Here's what they had to say after their duel at Valhalla.
Rory McIlroy and Rickie Fowler are a combined six years older than the man they were both trying to beat on Sunday at Valhalla, Phil Mickelson.
Both 25-year-olds should be in contention at majors for the next decade and you know what, that's a tremendous thing for golf.
They are two of the smoothest, most gracious golfers around and their respect for each other is pretty apparent.
And it was on display on Sunday after McIlroy won the PGA Championship for his fourth major.
Here's their Twitter exchange:
