Poor Rory McIlroy was left in a full on awkward turtle moment when ageing billionaire Donald Trump returned his rusty old 3-iron.
As the young Holywood golf star took to the course at Blue Monster in Florida earlier this week 68-year-old American entrepreneur Donald arrived on the course to greet him.
Never one to miss a media opportunity, Trump, got a scuba-diver to retrieve the 3-iron club that Rory thought he’d seen the last of during last week’s WGC-Cadillac Championship.
Trump told Rory that it was bad luck to continue playing with 13 clubs instead of his usual 14.
But Rory probably wished the businessman had have left the club where it was. He picked it to play his third shot on the 18th and final hole of he tournament with the ball ending up in the water again.
This time he didn’t chuck the club, as promised he returned it to Trump who is now going to auction it for charity.
