Mic'd up Rory McIlroy discusses love for Domino's pizza

Everyone loves pizza. While some pizza definitely is better than others, Rory McIlroy revealed that he has a favorite pie chain while mic'd up for Tiger Woods' event in Missouri. 

Woods was partnered with Justin Thomas and McIlroy was partnered with Justin Rose for the match. At one point, McIlroy began to discuss his love for Domino's pizza, even revealing that he's been on a "Domino's kick" for quite some time now. 

McIlroy's love for the "deluxe" pizza with "extra sausage and extra whatever" even got the attention of the national chain who responded, "you got it."

McIlroy isn't necessarily wrong in his assessment of Domino's pizza. If you don't know any good local pizza joints while you're traveling, Domino's is a great go-to option. Like any chain, though, some are better than others. 

In today's day and age with all the technology we have available, it's quite odd that McIlroy doesn't just look up good local pizza restaurants on Yelp or any other food review website. 

Regardless, though, this conversation alone should make television networks want to mic up players more often. It certainly would add to the viewing experience amid the coronavirus pandemic.
