Video: Rory McIlroy on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon

By Derek Evers

With great power comes great responsibility. And as the world's best golfer, Rory McIlroy has not only supplanted Tiger Woods on the course, he now must play the role of the sport's ambassador off of it. Which, of course, means making the Late Night rounds. He already sat down with David Letterman last year after his U.S. Open victory, so a swing by the NBC studios -- who, coincidentally will play television host to both the Tour Championship and Ryder Cup -- for a conversation with Jimmy Fallon was only fitting. McIlroy proves to be quite the charmer, but don't expect any more controversial Olympic statements. Just cute old home videos of his swing as a wee lad. Remind you of anyone?
