Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods have apparently struck up a friendship.
In an interview with the Irish Times, McIlroy, the ranked No. 1 in the world, told the newspaper that the golf stars have a fun, light-hearted replationship.
“Tiger gives me stick about being short,” McIlroy said. “He always asks me, ‘Seriously, how tall are you?’ I’ll say, ‘5-foot-9.’ 'Yeah, but without the hair? That’s 5-7, right?’ He’ll ask me, ‘What do you do when Caroline [Wozniacki, McIlroy’s girlfriend] wears heels?’
“But I give him grief about all sorts – getting old, getting bald. He doesn’t take himself too seriously, certainly not when I’m around. … I’ve been seeing loads of Tiger and I’ve got to know the person.”
