'I'm quite a Tiger anorak'

So says Rory McIlroy, who recalls watching Tiger Woods win the Masters by 12 shots in 1997.

"I'm quite a Tiger anorak - but that's not a bad thing," he told the Daily Express. "He is a great golfer but also a great role model to a lot of people ."

An anorak is a heavy parka with a hood, unless you're speaking the Queen's English, in which case it means, "a socially inept person with a hobby considered to be boring," according to the Free Dictionary.
