Rory McIlroy and Rickie Fowler accidentally recreated their Walker Cup picture at Hoylake

By Luke Kerr-Dineen

HOYLAKE, England -- It was bound to happen, and it did.

The picture of Rickie Fowler and Rory McIlroy from the Walker Cup in 2007 that everybody tweeted on Saturday happened on the first tee at Royal Liverpool on Sunday. There are some obvious differences: Rory's bag is creeping into the frame in the most recent picture, and the pair were putting in the Walker Cup picture, not standing on the tee like the one snapped at Hoylake. Still, all things considered, it's pretty darn close.

Here they are, side by side:
