The World No. 1's fitness has been in the spotlight a lot recently as he revs up for his first attempt at completing the career Grand Slam at the Masters. McIlroy appeared on the cover of Golf Digest's April issue as a chiseled statue, and two of his biggest sponsors, Nike and Bose, have created mini-documentaries detailing McIlroy's intense physical training.
McIlroy -- not Tiger Woods -- is the first golfer to be put on the cover of Men's Health. Now we'll see if all that work in the gym will lead to a first green jacket.
