In the midst of his fight to win the FedEx and collect the massive £15m prize, McIlroy was more interested in how West Ham got along against Villa.

As the camera zoomed in on Scheffler and McIlroy walking along the fairway as coverage headed into a commercial break, the commentator remarks that the American “only leads by three”.

McIlroy can then be heard telling his caddy: “West Ham beat Villa 1-0.”

They indeed have Rory, thanks to their first goal of the season – a deflected effort from Pablo Fornals.

The Hammers followed that up with a positive second-half performance and a 1-1 draw against Spurs on Wednesday night.

This is the kind of content we love. And McIlroy also really loves his football.
