Rory McIlroy doesn’t do a whole lot of on-course dancing. He does some strutting and the occasional twirl-n-release, but he leaves the footwork to the golf swing. That is, until last week.
Ahead of the BMW PGA Championship at the European Tour’s annual pre-tournament gala, McIlroy went up to Miguel Angel Jimenez and delivered his interpretation of the Spaniard’s hole-out dance.
“You’re my hero,” McIlroy said to Jimenez,”because, you know what, every time I turn on my TV, you either make a hole-in-one or hole out a shot.”
It’s at that point, McIlroy busts out the Reverse Ric Flair Strut.
“He does it every week,” McIlroy said. “Every week you hole a shot!”
What’s even better is that, just a few days later, Jimenez makes his European Tour record 10th career ace — his third of the season, and he indeed does a strut.
