Rory McIlroy shows off Raptors jersey after winning Canadian Open
Rory McIlroy is getting caught up in the Toronto Raptors hype while finishing things off at the Canadian Open.
McIlroy posted a dominant final round 61, good for a score of nine-under and a seven-stroke victory on Sunday. As he walked off the 18th green, he produced a Toronto Raptors jersey in front of the crowd.

McIlroy was actually in attendance for Game 2 of the NBA Finals and seemed to enjoy the atmosphere.
Excited to be in Toronto at NBA Finals. Can’t wait to tee it up this week @rbccanadianopen @golfcanada

McIlroy is definitely a basketball fan, though he has no obvious ties to the Raptors. If you’re in town and took in a recent game, though, you might as well show some love to the home team, especially with Canada in the midst of basketball fever.
