If you’re wondering why Rory McIlroy is said to be one of the most marketable athletes in the world, look no further than this post.
The world No. 1 golfer tweeted Tuesday afternoon from Shanghai, China, where he’s in town for the BMW Masters, that he won $50 at breakfast by eating a bowl of broccoli topped with blueberry yogurt. We’re guessing the bet was made with countryman Graeme McDowell since he said thanks to him.
Here you have a 23-year-old who has surpassed $10 million in career earnings and is making millions more in endorsements, taking on dares like a broke college student at the mess hall. It’s that type of personality that could land him $250 million from Nike.
Don’t ever change, Rory.
This is certainly much better than the last bet he made.
