Even one of the biggest pop stars on the planet could use a bunker lesson every now and then, and you probably can’t do much better for a teacher than Rory McIlroy at the moment.
McIlroy’s bunker game (and the rest of it) was good enough to pocket $15 million as the FedExCup champ last week at East Lake, and he didn’t take any time off, flying directly to Switzerland for the Omega European Masters.
Since he was in town anyways, McIlroy’s pro-am partner, Justin Timberlake didn’t see any reason he shouldn’t hit up the four-time major champ for a quick bunker lesson.
“If you practice your bunker shots, do that”, McIlroy says to Timberlake, “that makes it so much easier”. Sure looks that way. “Gotcha”, Timberlake replies.
