Two of the biggest names in professional golf stopped by the “Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon” on Monday night.
Golf’s hottest player, Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods were on hand with Fallon to be part of a little late-night television silliness called “Facebreakers.” Woods, still sidelined by a nagging back injury, was acting as Fallon’s coach.
The game featured a dozen panes of glass, six with Fallon’s face and six with McIlroy’s face. The host and pro golfer were going to take turns pitching golf balls at the glass panes until all of the panes of either had been broken.
On his very first shot, McIlroy broke one of the frosted panes with Fallon’s face.
The competition did not last long and McIlroy easily beat Fallon.
It may be worth wondering if the game was originally set up to feature a Woods / McIlroy face-off. Tiger Woods’ recent struggles with his back have led him to “shut it down” for a month as well as remove his name from consideration for next month’s Ryder Cup event.
