Seems like Mark Wahlberg rubbing shoulders with Rory McIlroy and Bubba Watson is starting to pay off. We knew that Rory gave the movie star a Nike driver when he was in Ireland to promote his movie Daddy’s Home late last year, but apparently the World No. 2 gave him some golf balls, too.
Oh, and given Walhberg’s tweet yesterday, it would stand to reason that he may have stolen some of Rory’s talent, Space Jam style.
Just made a hole in one at Pelican Hill from 161. 9 iron. Happy Friday! pic.twitter.com/jKidcx8jI3

McIlroy, not playing this week at the Valspar Championship, saw his friend’s tweet and let him know that his was the first hole-in-one with the new Nike RZN Tour golf ball.
Nice!! 1 more hole in one than I’ve made with those golf balls this year! I’ll have to catch up ⛳️ https://t.co/O3KifZSgJv

Your turn, Rory.
