VIDEO: Watch a guy fool a TV station acting as Rory McIlroy's cousin

VIDEO: Watch a guy fool a TV station acting as Rory McIlroy’s cousin



Local TV stations make a lot of gaffes. More often than not, it's because they simply fall prey to a story or an angle that sounds too good to be true (it often is).

So maybe it's no surprise, then, that the NBC affiliate in San Francisco had no problem airing a sound bite from a guy claiming to be Rory McIlroy's cousin, Jarly, who had moved from the motherland to the U.S. They brought him into the story and let him talk on camera entirely on the premise that he's related to the world No. 1.

The problem is that Jarly McIlroy doesn't exist. The guy in the report is Jarlath Magee, who is from County Down in Northern Ireland. But he's not McIlroy's cousin. (They also screw up the U.S. Amateur and U.S. Amateur Fourball.)



Now, let's hope someone doesn't make a mistake airing comments from a purported Tiger Woods cousin, Zebra Woods.
