Not that now is the best time to be having fun at Rory McIlroy’s expense, but long-serving parodist GolfCentralDaily.com is doing just that…and it’s pretty funny.
McIlroy tied for 22nd at the PGA Championship before revealing the rib injury that has plagued him since the winter is worse than we knew, causing him back spasms and numbness in his arm. He indicated he’s taking an undetermined time off to rest and deal with the issue.
So, while we may not be seeing the Ulsterman for a while, we might as well…laugh, right? “Golf impersonator” (not sure if that’s a full-time career) Steven Connolly sent the site this video of “Rory McIlroy explaining to the press what he is looking for in his next caddie.”
Per the video, the new caddie must:
- Never call him Rory on course, when he’s on course, his name is Rocky.
- Never look him in the eye.
- Laugh at all his jokes on the golf course.
To see Rory’s other “requirements,” check out the video.

Even if the video isn’t your specific cup of tea, you have to respect the quality of the impersonation and the synching with the video. Further, golf needs all the original content and levity it can get. Think of the amount of this sort of stuff in, say, football.
Anyway, get well Rocky, err, Rory, and good luck with that caddie search!
