Tenuous golf connection

Remember that model who tried to get Rory's attention at the WGC? Well, Rory just followed her on Twitter

Remember this woman at the WGC-Bridgestone earlier this month?



This one? The blonde woman who gently adjusted her hair moments after Rory hit his first tee shot on the par-3 15th hole?


Well, if you didn't, everyone else did (it helps that it all happened on national television). And it seems like her apparent attempt to capture Rory's attention worked just as planned. The woman, who we later learned was a model named Ashley Bongiovanni, now has a new Twitter follower: Rory McIlroy. The news was first reported by No Laying Up. Here's the proof:
