The Most Interesting Man in Golf just acquired the highest-ranked worshipper on the PGA Tour.
Speaking at an awards dinner prior to last weekend’s BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth, McIlroy approached Jimenez to gush about his holing-out skills.
“You’re my hero,” McIlroy tells Jimenez in the below European Tour video. “You know why? Every time I turn on the TV, you either make a hole-in-one, or you hole out and you do your little (McIlroy imitates Jimenez’s celebration jig). He does it every week. Every week you hole a shot.”
McIlroy isn’t wrong. Last week, Jimenez took the outright lead for most holes-in-one on the European Tour (10) with his ace on the par-3 second. Just one week before that, at the Spanish Open, Jimenez aced the par-3 eighth and took home a prize of almost 300 beers.
Might mimicking the dance bring the World No. 1 some good juju? Any way we get to see it, we’re thrilled.
