PHOTO: Rory McIlroy caddie bib spells his name McLLROY


Someone didn't use spell check when making the caddie bibs for this week's WGC-Cadillac Championship.

On Thursday, Rory McIlroy's caddie, J.P. Fitzgerald, wore his bib at Doral with his boss' name misspelled. Jason Sobel shared the goof on Twitter.

It's McILROY, not McLLROY. But, if you've typed anything before, you know it's pretty easy to mess up a capital I and a lower-case L. So maybe that was the issue.

Anyway, expect Fitzgerald to have a new bib for Friday.
