Rory McIlroy Pays Homage To Kobe Bryant At Augusta National

The Kobe Bryant Retirement Tour made a stop in Augusta, Ga. on Thursday, thanks to Bryant’s Nike stablemate Rory McIlroy.

Embracing “Mamba Day” on April 13 — the date of Kobe’s last NBA game — McIlroy donned a black and gold outfit to show his respect to the outgoing NBA star. McIlroy will try to embrace Bryant’s cut-throat “mamba mentality” as he attempts to chase down Jordan Spieth this weekend at the Masters.
