Rory McIlroy is sad and misses Tiger Woods (kind of)
This exchange between Rory McIlroy and a reporter about Tiger Woods was pretty hilarious.
This is awesome. Rory McIlroy is awesome and it's pretty clear why everyone loves him.
When he was asked on Wednesday if he missed Tiger Woods, he said he was.
"I'm sad. I miss him, yes."
It plays as good as it reads, too.
His real answer was more thoughtful, however.
"He's given us on Tour so many opportunities to play for bigger prize money, for more exposure, everything like that. When I say I do miss him, I sort of mean it, because he's a great addition to the Tour.
"And he has been the face of golf for the last 15, 20 years and golf is a better sport and a better place with Tiger Woods in it. So, hopefully, he has a speedy recovery and he gets back on the course soon, because any tournament where Tiger Woods is a factor, he creates a big buzz."
He's right, of course, but the candidness and humor are appreciated.
