Ep. 49 - Rory McIlroy

The Clubhouse with Shane Bacon - January 24, 2017 - 43:03

The world #2 golfer Rory McIlroy joins Shane this week as he's home recovering from an unexpected stress fracture in his rib. McIlroy discusses what he's been doing with his time off, what the recovery process has been like, and when exactly he plans to return. Plus, the guys get into some deep golf conversations around the misconceptions of "bulking" and lifting weights and how that relates to injuries, and how the modern golf game isn't built to let players sustain long careers anymore. Plus, the proper way to prepare for the Masters, and what makes Augusta National so difficult, especially during tournament play. McIlroy also discusses moving on from Nike equipment and adjusting to new companies, which professional athlete he compares himself most to, and answers some fun rapid fire questions.
