McIlroy jabs Woods

 

For Rory McIlroy, it really was a sign of respect and fondness that, having seen Tiger Woods in the interview room following his pro-am round at Bethpage Black on Wednesday, answered a question about next month’s Ryder Cup by saying, “I’d love Tiger to go out first and kick his (butt).” It was in the same spirit that Woods shot back, “Good to see you, too!” The two pair off today in the FedEx Cup playoffs in The Barclays in Farmington, N.Y. The groupings are determined by season-long FedEx points so Woods, No. 1, and McIlroy, No. 3, will play together, alongside Zach Johnson, No. 4. Second-place Jason Dufner did not enter. By winning the PGA Championship, McIlroy collected his second major at a slightly younger age than Woods. – Wire reports
