The Sporting Man-Date To Conquer All Man-Dates Is Set To Take Place Next Week

As sporting man-dates go, this is a pretty big one. Two men at the top of their respective sports will meet up for a recreational round of golf at the most famous golf course on the planet.

Four time major winner Rory McIlroy will tee off with four time Superbowl winner Tom Brady at the historic Augusta National golf course next week, according to The Golf Channel's Todd Lewis who shared his insider information with the world earlier today on twitter.


McIlory is a keen fan of the NFL, and Tom Brady too actually, as he said this about the New England Patriots QB before last year's FedEx Cup playoffs:


Of course. You’ve got to admire what Tom has done over his career, and he still keeps going. Is he 37? Something like that. He still keeps going. Each and every year he’s getting his team to the playoffs and winning big games in clutch moments. That’s what he thrives on. That’s what he trains for. That’s what he practices for.

Brady, on the other hand, is a single-digit-handicap golfer, who has shown he is capable of moments of magic on the golf course with shots like this one which set up an eagle at the 2014 AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am:

The fact that they are playing Augusta also takes this man-date to the next level, with the 2015 Masters kicking off a month from today. Rory's getting the practise in early.
