Rory McIlroy’s name misspelled at WGC-Cadillac Championship (pics)


There is no denying that spelling Rory McIlroy’s name can be risky business, especially when typing it, what with the uppercase “M” then lowercase “c” then an uppercase “I” followed by a lowercase “l” that in many fonts looks exactly like an uppercase “I.”

While all that may be true, it is nevertheless embarrassing that the world’s No. 3 golfer has his name misspelled all over the place at Doral this week at the WGC-Cadillac Championship.

From the bib being worn by his caddie, J.P. Fitzgerald:

… to the sign that is carried around with a group of golfers displaying their scores:

This is especially awkward given McIlroy is playing with both Jordan Spieth and Jason Day, the No. 1 and No. 2 players in the world, obviously meaning that trio is the most-followed group on the course.

Great googly moogly, indeed.

(reads through post to make certain “McIlroy” is spelled correctly throughout *fingers crossed*)
