Rory McIlroy potentially joining Nike's stable of golfers as a $200-plus-million man is likely the biggest storyline heading into next season. But there's a side story from the Rory-to-Nike rumors that's equally intriguing -- that of course being the budding "bromance" between McIlroy and Tiger Woods, which blossomed this year as the 23-year-old won his second major and moved into the top spot in the world rankings.
Following last month's Duel at Jinsha Lake, the two sat down for an exclusive interview with CNN to discuss, among other things, whether Tiger Woods still thinks he can break Jack Nicklaus' record of 18 major championship; the close relationship between the two golfers; and the nonstop scrutiny from the media.
Woods and McIlroy have both spoken at length about their friendship, but it's nice to see them doing sit-down interviews together.
