CINCINNATI -- Only a few hours after finishing at the PGA Championships in Atlanta, Rory McIlroy had made it 500 miles north to Cincinnati, Ohio, to watch WTA No. 1 and girlfriend Caroline Wozniacki practicing on the grounds of the Western & Southern Open.
After getting swarms of attention from other players, McIlroy joined Wozniacki on court for her 6 pm practice session, sitting idly on the sidelines in a UNC hat and trying to look as inconspicuous as possible.
Crowds gathered quickly once news of the pair's first public outing spread around the complex, standing seven-deep outside the small outer court where Wozniacki practiced with coach and father Piotr Wozniacki. McIlroy tried to look as disinterested as possible, tapping away at his cell phone and not watching Wozniacki intently.
But as this horribly grainy video shows, the two did interact occasionally.
AND they took time out for a couple drinks.
Dating McIlroy may be as close as Wozniacki comes to winning a major, but at least she gets to look down on him, height-wise.
