Little Interviews: When Billy Met Rory
Story published at 13:07, Tuesday, November 22nd, 2016
Rory McIlroy undertook the toughest interview of his career at Jumeirah Golf Estates in Dubai, where the four-time Major Champion met with nine year old reporter Billy on the eve of his defence of the DP World Tour Championship.
Part of the European Tour’s ‘BIG Little Interview’ series, which began in the summer and has featured interviews with golfers Graeme McDowell, Thomas Bjørn and Andrew ‘Beef’ Johnston as well as One Direction superstar Niall Horan, McIlroy was grilled on the subjects most reporters wouldn’t dare to ask.
From golf to girls to weddings to Tiger, Billy didn’t back down and the results were simply hilarious…
Filmed on location in one of Jumeirah Golf Estates’ luxury villas bordering the famous Earth Course, Billy and Rory even found time to go for a dip in the pool and play a little golf.
