VIDEO: Rory McIlroy sends drive toward Nike employee parking lot

Despite his dominance in the second half of 2014, Rory McIlroy occasionally hits a bad tee shot. It's true.

He also isn't usually teeing off on the Nike campus in Oregon, with a throng of employees watching him hit a drive toward a building on their "campus" some 350 yards away. It's not the best place to hit one of those occasional dud drives. But that's what McIlroy did on Tuesday at Nike headquarters, blasting his first drive during a demo toward the employee parking lot.

McIlroy posted the video to his Facebook page, poking fun of himself in the caption: "Got permission to hit golf balls at a building at Nike HQ in Oregon....first attempt didn't go so well!!"

After the world No. 1 strikes the ball, he realizes it's sailing off line and toward some vehicles, yelling, "Uh oh. Car park! Fore!"

No word on if a windshield paid the ultimate price, but we're sure McIlroy or Nike had it covered.
