Irish golfer Rory McIlroy takes on trash-talking robot on tricked-out driving range - VIDEO

\"\"

Irish golfer Rory McIlroy takes on a trash-talking robot in a video trending on the European Tour website, as the Irish Open is underway at the Carton House GC, Maynooth, Co. Kildare.

The clip tees-off of some old black & white video of Rory as a boy chipping balls into the open door of his mother's washing machine, and then amps-up the challenge with some tricked-out domestic appliances arrayed over a golf driving range.

Both robo-golfer and Irish golfer get off some great shots, but the mechanized man gets off the best cracks.



Maybe the metal monster messed with Rory's head, as McIlroy was two-over par after the first round, nowhere in sight of the leader board and a long way from walking home with this bit of glass...
