Some of the best golf television is not when the commentators are speaking, but when the golfers are discussing shots with their caddies or talking with each other.
That was no different Thursday during the first round of the Horizon Irish Open, where Rory McIlroy, the 2016 champion of the event at The K Club, and Billy Horschel were caught discussing the golf swing walking off a tee box.
At the beginning of the clip, McIlroy, ranked second in the world, stopped while walking off a tee box to act out a swing thought Horschel was describing. Then the latter talked about the feel in his golf swing and more, with the duo providing mesmerizing commentary for 30 seconds that any swing nerd can’t get enough of.
