Rory McIlroy’s famous win at last week’s US Open had an extra dimension that is becoming more and more prominent in the world of golf – he was able to receive hundreds of goodwill messages on Twitter from his near half a million followers, and they were able to receive updates from him after the event – he even posted this picture of the trophy on his kitchen table!
Must be a nice feeling!
Of course Rory isn’t the only golfer on Twitter – far from it – and it’s great to be able to see what’s going through the minds of these great players as they embark on these huge tournaments. It’s also amazing to be able to communicate with these guys – and if you’re lucky they might even send you a message back!
Here are some of the more active golfers on Twitter and where you can find them…
