Tiger Woods couldn’t leave Ireland without letting Rory McIlroy show him around on the ultimate golf buddy trip.
After Woods and McIlroy embarked on the JP McManus Pro-Am at Adare Manor earlier this week, Woods hinted at continuing his Open preparations on Irish soil, keeping his exact plans a secret from the media to avoid an onslaught of the press.
Now we know where and with whom he was going.
Just days before his third major appearance this season, the three-time Open champion played a game alongside his good friend McIlroy on Thursday at Ballybunion Golf Club on the west coast of Ireland.
McIlroy, the 2014 Open champion, and Woods seemed relaxed and having fun despite the gloomy weather conditions.
A video showed McIlroy appearing to share fond memories with the Big Cat.
“At the time, I was aiming for the middle of the fairway. It would start at the right edge and then come back to the middle of the fairway,” McIlroy said.
Locals who were in the area or, even luckier, who had a tee time were able to spot the two legends strolling the golf course.
The big question is, if you meet these two on the course, do you let them play?
