Turns Out, Tiger & Rory Met In Sunday Match Play Showdown!

Unfortunately for NBC, Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy played a friendly Sunday game at The Medalist after early WGC Accenture Match Play departures, reports Tim Rosaforte in Golf World Monday.

This is just the latest in their budding bromance (here, here and here if you must).

This is the worst news possible, kid has been totally corrupted! A private setting like that Rory can get a whole lot of useful info from Tiger ;0)

We never did get the details on Ror's contract with Nike did we?

Rosaforte is getting all the good stories lately... First the president, now that.

Rosaforte has got to be driving these guys nuts ever since he's tried to be the new "inside" guy. He's a good writer, why is he lowering himself to this type of NY POST journalism.

I'm still waiting on the details of Rory's whereabouts Saturday night during the Ryder Cup.

"He's a good writer, why is he lowering himself to this type of NY POST journalism. "

Because that's where the bucks are.

Rory certainly had good parenting, I'm surprised they didn't instruct him on picking his friends a little better.

"The Giants is dead"...Charlie Dressen, 1951.

And so are newspapers...and so are the days of Red Smith, Jim Murray and Dan Jenkins. Nobody cares. It's all part of the dumbing down of America. Rosaforte used to be one of those guys but he knew it was a dead cow. So he shaved his head, put on the Austin Powers horn-rims and bingo! Now he makes a living hiding behind palm trees, bribing the locker room help and overheating the Tweeter. They all do's what America wants. And Rosy doesn't have to hang around outside the Whisky or the Roxy or the Viper Room at two in the morning hoping Lindsey Lohan comes out drunk. No way. He's working the Grill Room, The Pro Shop, the Practice Tee...a paparazzi in polos. Give the public what they want...a rumor, an insult, something juicy, something dirty. Not everyone can be Tom Friedman or Maureen Dowd..and who would want to? Journalism is dead.

I would not call what Dan Jenkins, Jim Murray or Red Smith produced "journalism". Interesting prose, perhaps. Hanging out in the bar and knocking back scotches with players is not a sound reporting technique.

@Shady...and what would you call what Rosaforte does?...poetry?

Too bad Tiger wasn't such a gentlemen to Mickelson and others back in the day (think Arnold & Jack). He could have elevated golf and sportsmanship for everyone instead of being such a prick. It's all for show and we all know.

Bobby D.- you hit close to my heart- Maureen Dowd brings it.

As to our continuing review of the state orf journalism, I find it merely slumbering, with lazy ''writers'' who wait for press releases rather than find real information, and then you have the bald alien ''Rosie'' who is scary looking by A LOT, and who is more in to covering who X golfer's mom had lunch with than what same player will be doing thru the Florida swing.

Whle the MD guys seem all goo goo over these tidbits, the golfers I talk to are all laughing at the guy and calling him names.

The whole ''social media'' deal, which I suddenly realized we are part of , as this week our Captain was on the MD, well, I am going to need to reassess--- I am not a twiterrererr and don't havr a vry smart phone, but GD, I DON'T CARE if one of the Britney s cut her leg shaving, and I used to read Drudge and Huff, both terrifiic news gatherers, but man have they gotten all crap content too..... and Huff has this weird deal about ''sideboob'' men, women have tixxs-- they are everywhere, and it is fashionable to show them, so try and gettig out of the house and experience real ''social interaction'' instead of SMedia.

Sorry for the disconnect.......
