After three incredible weeks of golf, which included a second-place finish at the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship, a win at The Honda Classic, a rise to the No. 1 spot in the world rankings, and a third-place finish at the WGC-Cadillac Championship, Rory McIlroy is taking a well-earned break from tournament golf. But that doesn't mean his fans are on hiatus. Instead the young Ulsterman's followers are taking things into their own capable hands, as you can see and hear in the new "Rory McIlroy Song" by the Corrigan Brothers, which, coincidentally, is currently the No. 1 Irish drinking song in the world:
Mickelson, Bradley and others commit to Shell Houston OpenFor a tournament like the Shell Houston Open that's been trying to regain some prestige in recent years, a commitment from Phil Mickelson is a pretty good thing. Mickelson recently agreed to defend his 2011 SHO title at the Redstone Golf Club, where the tournament will be held between March 29 and April 1. Other notable players who have committed to the tournament include reigning Masters champion Charl Schwartzel, reigning PGA champion Keegan Bradley, reigning British Open champion Darren Clarke, as well as former major champions Louis Oosthuizen, Ernie Els and Retief Goosen. Tiger's new video game features Rory as toddlerIf you thought baby Tiger was the only kid to appear in EA Sports' new Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13 video game, you were seriously mistaken. As a bonus for completing the Tiger Legacy Challenge, in which you have to take down a child version of Eldrick, the toddler version of Rors is unlocked for your gaming pleasure. Here's a quick peak on what the current No. 1 player on the planet looks like as in digital form today and as a child.
