Rory McIlroy can’t wait to kick Tiger’s ass at the Ryder Cup

Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods will be playing together in a PGA Tour event for the first time when they and Zach Johnson tee off at The Barclays on Thursday. Although McIlroy and Woods have tremendous respect for each other, the youngster couldn’t help but talk some trash to his idol during a press conference on Wednesday.

A reporter began a question to McIlroy by mentioning the Ryder Cup when the two-time major winner interjected.

“Yeah, I’d love Tiger to go out first and kick his ass,” McIlroy joked with a big smile, receiving much laughter.

Naturally, a reporter followed up with Woods, asking if he was ready to have his ass kicked by Rory at Medinah.

“At Medinah?” Tiger asked. “No.”

Tiger will never concede anything to an opponent. And even though McIlroy is an admitted Tiger Woods stalker, you know he does in fact want to kick Tiger’s ass in competition.

The two are in the same group because they are Nos. 1 and 3 in the FedEx Cup point standings. All the trios at the event are organized by the point rankings, which has led to some very strong groupings.
