Rory McIlroy reveals his favorite Olympic sport, and it’s not what we were expecting

Published

on

Rory McIlroy has officially caught Olympic fever. After previously mentioning he wasn’t particularly looking forward to competing in Tokyo, McIlroy said after his Friday round that he’s “already looking forward to Paris” in 2024.

It’s not just golf that has Rory excited either. When discussing the disappointment of how Olympians are unable to watch other sports in person, the four-time major champion gave an extremely surprising answer for the sport he wishes he could experience in person the most.

“The one thing that’s on tonight that I’ve always wanted to go and see is dressage. Always. It’s mesmerizing and it’s on tonight at like 7:30. I’ll watch it on TV.”

If you are unaware what dressage actually is, you’re not alone.

According to Wikipedia, “Dressage is a form of horse riding performed in exhibition and competition,” where “horse and rider are expected to perform from memory a series of predetermined movements.”

I’m not sure if that clears anything up, but if Rory is intrigued, maybe we’ll give it a chance.

Report: Greg Norman spotted following a surprise grouping on Thursday at the Masters

Published

on

Greg Norman is at this week’s Masters tournament but found himself in a situation where he had to buy himself a ticket to enter the grounds.

Speaking to the Washington Post, Norman explained why he was at Augusta National:

“I’m here because we have 13 players that won 10 Masters between them. So I’m here just to support them, do the best I can to show them, ‘Hey, you know, the boss is here rooting for you.’ ”

So who was Norman following during the opening round of this year’s Masters? Well the answer may surprise you.

Per Sports Illustrated’s Bob Harig, Norman was spotted following the LIV-less grouping of Rory McIlroy, Scottie Scheffler and Xander Schauffele.

We’ll find out a little later today whether Norman will make his third appearance in as many days at this year’s opening major.

Collin Morikawa makes surprising late putter switch at Masters

Published

on

Collin Morikawa has had plenty of success with a blade in his hands over the course of his young career, but after a lean spell on the greens lately, it appears that the 27-year-old is ready to try something new.

The California-native began the year with his TaylorMade TP Soto before switching to a Logan Olson proto last month. Now at this week’s Masters, Morikawa has been spotted with a Spider Tour X, the same flatstick that Scottie Scheffler will be using at Augusta.

The move would represent a big change, but it has been a very frustrating year on the greens for Morikawa, who will hope the TaylorMade mallet can offer him a similar upturn in fortune to that of Scheffler. In 2024, Morikawa ranks 164th for Strokes Gained: Putting, and 157th for Total Putting.

We’ll keep an eye whether Morikawa puts the mallet into action on day one of the Masters.

Published

on

Fresh off of winning $2.76 million on UConn’s victory over Purdue on Monday night, Barstool Sports’ founder Dave Portnoy has just placed a massive bet for this year’s Masters.

Tweeting on Wednesday morning, Portnoy revealed that he has placed $300,000 on Scottie Scheffler to win this year’s Masters at odds of +450.

Should he win, that’d be a total payout of $1.65 million.

Scheffler is one of the shortest priced favorites of recent times at the Masters, and is looking for what would be his third win in his last four events.
