McIlroy and Garcia hit some drives…wearing space suits

Rory McIlroy and Sergio Garcia took part in an “Astronauts for the Day” promotion this past Monday at the PGA Championship – which meant they had to hit golf balls while wearing space suits.

Hitting drives isn’t as easy as it might appear to some people, even when wearing top of the range golf attire. So, imagine how difficult Rory and Sergio must have found it when they stepped up to take their swings in these heavy suits.

McIlroy seemed to struggle with what to do, commenting, “I don’t know what way to grip it.” He eventually decided on a baseball grip, and smashed the drive in classic Rory fashion.
