Four Superbowls, four majors

We can’t say we’re too gone on Brady’s Simon Cowell-esque trouser choice, mind.

As well as the money, the prestige, the lifestyle etc. one of the perks of being the best golfers in the world is getting to hang out with similarly high-profile personalities from other sports.

Rory McIlroy can regularly be seen out and about with his friends at Manchester United and Ulster Rugby and this week, he had the privilege of sharing the company of the one and only Tom Brady, one of the greatest quarter-backs in the history of the NFL.

Posting a picture with Brady on his Facebook page, McIlroy also revealed that he’ll be teeing it up with Brady at Augusta ahead of the US Masters next month.

Hopefully, Brady will be a good luck charm ahead of McIlroy’s attempt to complete the career slam which seems inevitable in the not too distant future.

All this picture needs now to make it even better is the presence of Robbie Keane and an ‘unidentified fan’ caption to go with it.

Sorry Robbie.
