Rory McIlroy Gets Smashed In An Arm Wrestling Match To A Teenager

Rory has gotten pretty jacked over the years, kind of similar to how Tiger got when he was younger. He broke into to golf as a scrawny little Irishman, and gradually got bigger and bigger to the point now where he’s chiseled and banging models.

So whose new era really is it, Sports Illustrated?

Our friend Ed Sherman made this humorous observation that’s worth shedding some light on quite the coincidence.

McIlroy starts fast, but stumbles home in Masters finish

AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) Rory McIlroy roared off the starting line and almost as suddenly ran out of gas.
