WHAT happens when the game's best player meets up with its most talented trick shot exponents? Something pretty entertaining, it turns out.
At the recent PGA Championship media day at Whistling Straits (prior to Rory's unfortunate soccer mishap) McIlroy sponsor Bose organised for the World Number One to pair up with internet golf trick shot sensations the Bryan Brothers.
What followed was two and a half minutes of pretty impressive trick shots including McIlroy having a crack at the 'driver out of mid air' shot the brothers have made famous.
For hand eye coordination it would be hard to find three more talented individuals and it's pretty obvious by McIlroy's reaction even he was impressed with the brothers' skills (and they with his).
The question now is whether this is all we will get to see of Rory at Whistling Straits in 2015.
Recent reports suggest he may be heading to the course for a practise round later this week and speculation is that he is a better than 50/50 chance to defend his title.
