Who's faster in a footrace, Rory McIlroy or fiancee Caroline Wozniacki? The answer is ... it depends.
Rory McIlroy was sitting in the airport on Wednesday, getting ready to fly from, well, somewhere to somewhere else, when his flight got delayed. To fill the time, McIlroy hopped on Twitter and said he’d do a quick Q&A with his 1.8 million followers.
Within minutes, he was flooded with questions ranging from the sublime to the ridiculous. But he was game, and answered a couple dozen queries on everything from fiancée Caroline Wozniacki to Manchester United to his favorite movies and TV shows – even some asking for golf advice.
I didn’t ask any questions, but I did enjoy many of his answers. I’ve gone through his prodigious output and culled some of his most interesting responses. Here they are in text form:
@nkeyser3: are you serious with this whole engagement thing? Because I am single and available!
@McIlroyRory: Haha yes very serious! ☺
@JCraw4991: who would win in a 100m dash? You or @CaroWozniacki?
@McIlroyRory: Me but she would kill me at endurance
@jameshunt96: favourite films?
@McIlroyRory: Batman dark knight, Superbad, old school, anchorman
@PastyMalone: should I spend money on new clubs or lessons?
@jhaste76: Rory what's the main thing about hitting your woods off the deck?
@McIlroyRory: Maintain height and spine angle
@PaulHobartGolf: What goes through your mind on your best putting days?
@McIlroyRory: Nothing! Visualize the putt going in and hit it
McIlroy tied for ninth in the Omega Dubai Desert Classic on Sunday, and is next scheduled to play at the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship the week after next. To follow him on Twitter, click here.
