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.
