Equipped with a stand bag and a pair of shorts, Rory McIlroy worked on his game alongside hackers like you and me at a muni driving range in Miami last week.

Rory McIlroy, who was bumped from No. 1 in the Official World Golf Ranking to No. 2 after a win by Tiger Woods earlier today at Bay Hill, was photographed on Friday hitting golf balls at the Miami Municipal Golf Course.
 
McIlroy was in Miami to watch girlfriend Caroline Wozniacki compete in the Sony Open tennis tournament.
 
It's not really news -- one of the world's top golfers working on his game. But, it's pretty cool that McIlroy decided to pound some rocks at an every man's kinda place. Especially when you consider that McIlroy could probably roll up to any posh country club in the world and head to the range, no questions asked.
 
Here's to hoping McIlroy didn't get -- or take -- any unsolicited advice from an onlooker, as so often happens on a muni driving range.
