Awkward pics of Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy are all kinds of awesome (pics)


Tiger Woods and his newly minted Nike Golf protégé, Rory McIlroy, shared an awkward moment while making a boatload of cash for appearing at the Abu Dhabi Golf Championship in the United Arab Emirates.

During some amusingly conceived photo-op, Woods and McIlroy, who were paired together in the first round of the tourney, are poured a drink from an ornate carafe. But what occurred next is what truly merits a good chuckle.


Ha. How romantic. The act of locking arms and then tipping back a drink is something one normally sees happening at a wedding between bride and groom, not at some event to kick off a golf tournament. Nevertheless, it is a sight to behold.

Cheers, Tiger. Cheers, Rory. Bottoms up. Tip ‘em back and enjoy.

    I LOVE this picture. It’s good to see these two players getting along. I wish them both luck the next couple of days. I really would like to see TIGER win and Rory comes in second or third. Of course, the farther behind Tiger he is the more I would like it. Tiger you are the King and this year you are going to show all the unbeliervers you are still THE GREATEST.

    It’s been a tough four plus years,, not for just Tiger but also for us as well and let’s figure he’s back at doing what he does so well and that’s making those very cool shots he even admires when the balls on it’s way to the green .I’ve seen Ells ,Travino ,Jack and Faldo hit some great shots but Tiger puts something very cool on that journey it takes and i sure have missed it , let’s hope and pray he’s back . Golf needs the boost .
