Tiger Woods caught flicking Rory McIlroy’s ear at US Open
Tiger Woods showed a side of himself that we are not used to seeing at the US Open Champions Dinner on Tuesday. The event is supposed to be an enjoyable one, but most fans are accustomed to seeing a serious Tiger who rarely goofs around or has fun with other golfers. For a split second, that changed.
As you can see from the photo above that was posted on Reddit, cameras caught Woods flicking Rory McIlroy’s ear while he was being interviewed. I don’t have any stats in front of me, but I feel confident assuming that is the only time Tiger has ever flicked another golfer’s ear on camera.
Some people assumed Rory and Tiger didn’t like each other when McIlroy talked about kicking his ass at the Ryder Cup last year, but that is obviously not the case. Between the ear-flicking and the this comment from Tiger a couple of months ago, it’s obvious Nike’s two poster boys get along just fine.
