Rory McIlroy is making his PGA Tour season debut at Pebble Beach this week. But in case the theater in Carmel is not enough to wet your Rory whistle, the four-time major winner will also be in action on your Amazon account, albeit in a slightly different fashion.

McIlroy will be making an appearance on "The Grand Tour" this Friday, a Prime series revolving around motor sports. The 28-year-old will face socialite Paris Hilton in a celebrity segment, where they will drive a Jaguar F Type around the show's designated track "Eboladrome," at the former RAF Wroughton.

The Northern Irishman is a noted car enthusiast, once buying one of Ian Poulter's famed Ferrari F12s. The show will air this Friday.
