9-Year-Old Rory McIlroy Sent Tiger Woods A Letter To Beware Of Him

Over the past several years, Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods have been on opposite paths in their golfing trajectories.

After winning both The Open Championship and the PGA Championship in 2014, McIlroy has become the world's number one player.

Woods, on the other hand, hasn't won a major since 2008, and he recently dropped out of the top 100 for the first time since 1996.

Apparently, Rory knew it would be this way all along.

According to a piece published by Charles Siebert in The New York Times, a 9-year-old Rory McIlroy wrote a letter to Woods, cautioning him of his eventual takeover of the golf world.

Pretty ballsy for a kid still a few years away from puberty, right?

In Siebert's story, Rory's uncle recalls his nephew writing the letter following his victory at the 1998 Doral-Publix Junior Golf Classic.

The Northern Irishman must've been feeling some type of way after wiping the floor with the rest of the field.

The exact wording of the letter is unknown, but McIlroy's uncle paraphrased the 9-year-old in an email:

I'm coming to get you. This is the beginning. Watch this space.

Even if Tiger took heed back in 1998, there was probably little he could've done to stop McIlroy.
