Home McIlroy has a laugh at his own expense

Rory McIlroy has been getting plenty of stick lately for his performance on the golf course. However, he is can still laugh at himself despite the slump he’s been going through, which in part makes his likable. Recently, The European Tour filmed him up against a robot, which presented the former world #1 in a less scripted setting.  “It was completely ad-libbed and there was no scripting involved at all in that. There was a guy, a comedian that was sort of saying all the lines to me,” he explained. “It's been really well received, obviously millions of views on YouTube. I was very happy to be a part of it. It was a fun afternoon shooting it.”

It appears that a second, uncut version might be even more intriguing to watch. “There was a lot of stuff that couldn't have been put in,” McIlroy conceded. “There was a few expletives flying around.” Have a look at the original again, its worth the time.
