Rory McIlroy Confident He'd Beat Jordan Spieth in a Wrestling Match

Rory McIlroy Says He'd Beat Jordan Spieth in a Wrestling Match
During a livestream from Dublin's Facebook headquarters, Rory McIlroy told viewers he would come out on top in a wrestling match with Jordan Spieth.

Rory McIlroy is pretty sure he could take Jordan Spieth. In a wrestling match, that is.

McIlroy posted a video on Thursday filmed at Facebook's Dublin offices in which he answered questions from his fan base about what he wants for Christmas, his movie preferences, and yes, who might come out on top if he, world No. 3, and top-ranked Spieth were to wrestle.

"Me, obviously," he said. But he conceded that Jordan might best him in a putting competition.

Other tidbits we learned from the clip? McIlroy prefers Happy Gilmore to Caddyshack, he likes red better than blue, his driver is his favorite club in his bag, and he's a difficult person to buy Christmas presents for.

You can watch the full video here. No word yet on a response from the famously competitive Spieth.
