Rory McIlroy

McIlory wins Chinese cash grab

There was a Chinese cash grab this weekend at Mission Hills, Tiger Woods vs. Rory McIlory.  This event is one of many in which the world’s best players fly in on their private jets, play 18 holes, and fill their wheelbarrows up with millions in cash.  Ernie Els has even called this season the “wheelbarrow tour.”

Rory beat Tiger for the 2nd year in a row while together they pocketed somewhere around $3.5 million.

I wonder if they had a side bet?

Right now there  are a lot of big sporting events going on like college football, NFL football and oh yea, the World Series.  (I’m told the World Series is a big event in a sport called baseball, but I’m so focused on golf I’m not really in tune with anything else…).

So tell me… is this type of event of any interest?  If so why?
