“Hopefully if he can get healthy, I would still love to have a crack at him down the stretch in a Major, I would love that, just once.”

This was what Rory had to say about a Tiger comeback. What other reaction did the journalist expect? “Good riddance, golf is better without him!’ I doubt any of these guys have that opinion.

Tiger would have adorned the walls of almost every under-30 professional, so a chance to duel with him once – safe in the knowledge he’s in the latter stages of his career – would be a dream come true. 

How do you think Tiger and Rory get on after this conversation? Tiger’s ‘he smoked your arse comment’ got me good.

Rory is preparing hard in Dubai but still found time to mess around away from the course. He accepted an invitation to go on a zip line, much to the disgust of a small section of fans.

The player shared our view on short wearing at professional tournaments; “Golf needs to move with the times, and I don’t think there’s anything wrong with showing the bottom half of your legs.” 

The tourney gets underway on Thursday. Any of the golfing purists remember this Colin Montgomerie Driver off the deck that won ‘Shot of the Year’?
