Rust. We all get it when we take time off from the game of golf. I get it, you get it, and apparently Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods get it. Sure, they've been practicing and playing money games in their "offseason," but to get back into a competitive round that counts for the year is a bit different even for the top two players in the world.
On Thursday in Abu Dhabi, Rory hit a pretty nasty snap hook on his way to a 3-over 75, and while Tiger bested him by three shots in the round, his top you see above was definitely uglier.
Tiger made bogey, hung his head and probably dreamed of many pro-ams where he has seen players perfect that golf shot.
