Who was that man banging on McIlroy's window?

March 31, 2009

It was Jack Nicklaus, as Derek Lawrenson recounts in the Daily Mail in a story on Rory McIlroy's rising popularity.

"McIlroy was leaving a shopping mall in Florida one night when a retired golfer came running over and banged on the window of his courtesy car," Lawrenson writes. "I thought it was you,' the man said. I just wanted to introduce myself. I'm Jack Nicklaus.'"
