Rory McIlroy lands Men’s Health magazine cover

Rory McIlroy has been showing off his abs a whole lot of late.

First, he appeared shirtless on the cover of the April issue of Golf Digest.


His latest magazine photo spread has him going more for the Tom Selleck look.


McIlroy became the first golfer to land the cover of Men's Health magazine, out just in time for the Masters. The feature details how McIlroy and trainer Steve McGregor have shaped the world No. 1's body over the last five years into a condition that would be ideal for most any sport.

The Ulsterman acknowledges that success in pro golf is a lot easier for the physically fit.

"As golf evolves and people have more knowledge, it’s only beneficial to be athletic and be strong in certain areas," he said. "Golf has become a power game, it really has. There’s obviously skill involved, but the longer you can hit it, the more advantage you’re going to have.”

McIlroy's cover somewhat calls to mind when Tiger Woods was on the cover of the similarly named Men's Fitness back in August 2007.
