San Francisco Giants to immortalize Rory McIlroy in bobblehead form

Jonathan Wall

Rory McIlroy may not be a fan of the San Francisco Giants (or baseball for that matter), but the Bay Area team plans to immortalize the 23-year-old in bobblehead form anyway during a game against the Astros later this year.

If you're wondering why the Giants are even giving McIlroy some bobblehead love in the first place, the game happens to take place the same week as the U.S. Open at Olympic Club in San Francisco, so the marketing gimmick makes sense.

No word yet if he's going to show up for Irish Heritage Night or throw out the first pitch, but as defending U.S. Open champ, I don't think anyone would blame him if he passed on the game.

Even if he does decide to pass, I'd ask the Giants for a couple of those bobbleheads. Unlike some of the awful ones out there on the market, this one looks pretty darn good. Well done, Giants! Now if you could just learn how to correctly spell the name of your hometown. (See the opener of the advertisement.)
