Two of the biggest names in golf visited ‘The Tonight Show’ on Monday to showcase the newest Nike golf irons and take part in a game of ‘Facebreakers.’
Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods, who are both endorsed by Nike, joined host Jimmy Fallon to launch the company’s new Vapor irons on stage. But it was the time spent using the wedges that made the appearance memorable.
McIlroy, winner of two consecutive major tournaments, went up against Fallon in a game where each player tries to hit a golf ball through a pane of glass with the other person’s face on it. Woods, who is recovering from a back injury, didn’t participate in the game, but he did act as Fallon’s coach and caddy. In the end, the top-ranked golfer in the world couldn’t be beaten, as McIlroy shattered Fallon’s faces for the victory.
Both golfers are in town as the PGA Tour moves into its FedEx Cup Playoffs with the Barclays tournament in New Jersey. And you guessed it, McIlroy is the favorite to win his fourth straight event.
