Some of the best golf TV is not when the commentators are talking, but when the golfers are discussing shots with their caddies or talking to each other.
It was no different on Thursday during the first round of the Horizon Irish Open, when Rory McIlroy, the 2016 champion of the event at The K Club, and Billy Horschel were caught discussing the golf swing as they walked off a tee box.
At the beginning of the clip, McIlroy, ranked second in the world, stopped while walking from a tee box to play a swing thought, Horschel described. Then the latter talked about the feel of his golf swing and more, with the duo delivering fascinating commentary for 30 seconds that any swing geek can’t get enough of.
McIlroy and Horschel shot matching 3-under 69s in the opening round. There is a four-way tie for the lead at 6-under 66, which includes Jordan Smith, Thomas Bjorn, Ross Fisher and Ashun Wu.
