Caroline Wozniacki takes a tee shot for her boyfriend Rory McIlroy during the festivities to open the Masters. Results were not awesome.

Joe DiMaggio and Marilyn Monroe they are not. The famous old ball player and movie star were an all-star couple with a dramatic, star glazed quality that we couldn’t resist. Rory McIlroy and Caroline Wozniacki? What can you say, really, bar, Jokin’ Joe and Marilyn will not be challenged for ‘athlete couple of all time’ for some time yet.
Nevertheless, Rory and Caroline are being gleefully rammed down our collective throats at every possible occasion. Thankfully, we still get a chance to laugh at their antics on occasion, perhaps unintentionally, and definitely not as planned out in advance by their seemingly rabid PR teams.
This week in the Masters par 3 tournament Rory McIlroy and his playing partner Graeme McDowell played the course with their respective lady friends as their caddies. Rory even let Caroline have a shot. Let’s have a look at how that went.
Perhaps Caroline should stick to tennis, for now anyway. Notice how the divot went further than the 'tee shot'?
It is just as well McIlroy is not superstitious, and he won't take this epic tee shot fail into the tournament proper with him as mental baggage. It is as well McIlroy is rock solid mentally, and completely unlikely to do anything crazy like, for example, walk off the course in the middle of the back nine.
