Much has been made of the rivalry between Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods as there have been some exchanges between the two in the media. Both players are in the hunt to win the Fed Ex Cup and the $10,000,000 bonus that goes along with it. And both were off to a hot start as they played together today in the first round of the TOUR Championship by Coca-Cola. Rory shot -1 for the first round and Tiger charged to the top of the leaderboard with at 66 putting him at -4 for the tournament.
Recently Upper Deck conducted a signing session with the company’s newest spokesperson; Rory McIlroy. We had the opportunity to ask Rory some questions and found the answer to what players he looked up to while growing up interesting. Take a look.
So while it seems both have a very competitive nature, there is definitely a respect and even admiration for the way each other play. Upper Deck is proud to be the exclusive home of signed memorabilia for both of these amazing golfers.

It should be a lot of fun to see how these two great champions play this weekend. Good luck to each of them!
