RYDER CUP teammates Rory McIlroy and Luke Donald have teamed up for a Christmas promotion of the tournament.
The duo recreated an iconic scene from their favorite holiday movie love actually with Donald coming to McIlroy’s doorstep.
The video shared on TwitterIt starts off just like the 2003 film, in which McIlroy says they are “singers” to protect their privacy.
Donald then holds up signs that read, “With any luck I’ll be a winning Ryder Cup captain by this time next year”.
This news was followed by an image showing the European team winning the tournament, with Donald’s head superimposed on it.
The next set of messages read: “But now let me say with no hope or agenda just because it’s Christmas (and we tell the truth at Christmas) you’re almost perfect to me.
“And I could only love you if you played like this guy at the Ryder Cup in Rome.”
Donaldo then revealed a picture of Spanish golfer Jon Rahm, who won the DP World Tour Championship in November.
The final sign simply read ‘Merry Christmas’ before McIlroy and Donald hugged the Northern Irishman and said ‘I’ll try my best captain’.
Fans loved the video and the duo’s social media performance, with one commenting: “Rory’s shoulders are shaking trying not to laugh is the best part.”
