VIDEO: Rory McIlroy’s rugby drop-kick trick shot is pretty sweet


SHARE THIS STORY

Rory McIlroy loves his rugby. It'd have been his fallback sport had this whole golf thing not worked out for him. So imagine his excitement this week when famous rugby player Brian O'Driscoll showed up on the range at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship with some uprights in range of his leg.

O'Driscoll shows off his foot, then McIlroy makes one of his own. Then the duo tries to turn the skill toward golf, with McIlroy showing off how to do the golf equivalent of the drop kick. O'Driscoll then follows suit.

And now we all have a new trick shot to try.
