Rory McIlroy Takes Target Practice On River Thames

Being the No. 1 ranked golfer in the world has its perks, and Rory McIlroy is taking full advantage of them. He made stops around New York City with his buddy Tiger Woods in August, and on Wednesday, he was in London taking some target practice.

McIlroy was at Santander’s 123 World launch event where he hit balls on the River Thames to raise money for charity.

Being the guy that he is, McIlroy was able to raise $14,737 for NSPCC and $6,543 for the Rory Foundation with his shots.

He also sent five lucky winners on trips, which were based on where McIlroy’s ball hit on the map target.

Even Boris Johnson, the Mayor of London, stopped by to take a few swings, and McIlroy gave him a quick lesson.
