It's In The Hole

A Cinderella story:
The day got off to a rousing start as some yahoo in the crowd at the raucous first tee started a chant of “America! America!” That yahoo turned out to be Bill Murray disguised in a floppy hat. Bill always seems to be having more fun than anyone else. I asked him if he’d quickly read my screenplay and he got the joke. Murray and I walked in the first group with Reed and McIlroy and saw possibly the greatest eight holes of match play golf ever played.

On the eighth green after both players were four under McIlroy drained a 60-foot bomb that set off a full-throated celebration that included his hand to his ear telling the American hecklers, “I can’t hear you!” Not to be outdone Reed dropped a 30-footer from the fringe right on top of McIlroy’s ball. That was punctuated with another scream and a Mutomboesque finger wag at McIlroy as if to say not in my house. It was an exchange in the genteel sport of golf you’re never likely to see again. And since it was golf, both players fist bumped to show there was no ill will.
He's gonna hit about a 2 iron I think...
