Rory McIlroy gifted American actor Mark Wahlberg a new driver as the two lunched at Portmarnock Golf Club in Dublin recently.
Wahlberg and American comedian Will Ferrell were in Ireland to promote their new movie, Daddy’s Home.
Wahlberg, a 7 handicap, and Ferrell, an avid sportsman despite his goofy nature, played a round at Portmarnock before lunching with the No. 3 player in the world.
“I had a bite to eat with Rory on Sunday and I was like, ‘Dude, I need to come back, play golf and just hang out and see the sights,'” Wahlberg said. “He gave me a new driver, which was great, I just can’t wait to get to a golf course or a driving range and try it out.”
