If you come at Rory McIlroy, you best not miss. The four-time major winner was a non-factor this week at Erin Hills missing the cut at the U.S. Open for the second straight year. However, while his game wasn’t on point this week, his Twitter skills were on full display. On Friday, former PGA Tour player and major champion Steve Elkington called the 28-yeard old Northern Irishman’s motivation into question along with assigning a dollar amount to it.

Whether Elkington was expecting to elicit a response or not didn’t matter because McIlroy fired back and even included his own Wikipedia page for good measure! 

 

Ironically, Rory just checked in at #6 on Forbes’ World’s Highest-Paid Athlete List for 2017 earning $50 million over the last year alone in endorsements and earnings. 

Fair to say this round goes to Rory.
