VIDEO: Rory McIlroy goes down a zipline over water in Dubai


Rory McIlroy may have put soccer on the back burner since his ankle injury last July, but that doesn't mean the world No. 2 is afraid to have fun.

On Tuesday in Dubai, McIlroy decided to hop down a zipline over a big pool ahead of the Omega Dubai Desert Classic.

"See you on the other side," McIlroy said in the video he posted to his Instagram account before being pushed down the line.
