One of the world's top-ranked golfers, McIlroy works on his swing on the tennis court as well as the links. Two good reasons why: (1) the swings have similar movement patterns, requiring you to select a target, have good body rotation and follow through; and (2) his girlfriend is elite tennis player Caroline Wozniacki. Recently, Wozniacki called out her beau to face off against Maria Sharapova during an exhibition match. McIlroy held his own, scoring a point.
