"I'd love Tiger to go out first and kick his ass"

Rory McIlroy is a savvy young man.

Unlike his idol, Tiger Woods, the Ulsterman is not afraid to give the media something to write about. He understands the media plays an important role in shaping the opinions of golf fans around the world, so he's willing to be honest and forthcoming most of the time.

During his pre-tournament press conference yesterday, Rory was asked about a potential current number one versus former number one match up in the Ryder Cup. And Rory provided a pretty colorful answer.
"I know the Ryder Cup is a ways away," one reporter asked, "But how --"

McIlroy snatched the question mid-air: "Yeah, I'd love to go out there," he joked. "I'd love Tiger to go out first and kick his ass."
Tiger was next in the press conference lineup, so naturally he was asked to respond to Rory's playful comment.
"I know he was joking, but are you ready to have your ass kicked by Rory at Medinah?" asked a voice from the crowd minutes later.

"At Medinah?" Tiger said, already slipping into a smile. "No."
I would absolutely love to see Rory and Tiger square off in a singles match on the final day of the Ryder Cup. And further, I'd love to see the cup come down to their match. I, along with everyone who is a fan of golf, would be glued to the TV in that match up were to happen.

These guys are friends and golf is not about someone kick #@!!!. It is about playing the course. I would like to see football played on the football field, not on the golf course. And for McRory this kid is good, he will someday have the total game and he is closer the we think.
