McIllroy Masters The Irish Open

Rory McIllroy yesterday won the Irish Open. So whathe do with his winnings? Buy a new car? P{op champagne on some strippers’ titties? Nope. He donated all $750,000 to his charity, the Rory Foundation..

Go figure the guy would win his home tournament, but this is truly an act of selflessness. As much as I hate golf for being the most insufferably boring sport to watch, tied with soccer of course, I have to commend the guy for what he did. Most athletes wouldn’t do such a thing. McIllroy made headlines last year when saying the $10 million bonus pot at the FedExCup finale wasn’t something that meant much to him.

It really is refreshing to see someone like that in pro sports and hopefully more guys will follow suit and donate a portion of their winnings considering how much they make off sponsorships.
