9 reasons to be jealous of birthday boy Rory McIlroy

Wee-Mac turns 24 today. He’s crammed a lot in so far.

RORY MCILROY TURNS 24 — just 24! — today. And that, in no way, makes me feel inadequate.

Already, he’s won two majors, signed one of the biggest endorsement deals in sports history with Nike and his girlfriend is a Danish tennis superstar who models underwear in her spare time.

Not enough? Here’s 9 other reasons to be jealous of Wee-Mac.

9. He seems to be on the same wavelength with his aforementioned girlfriend

Complementary clothing is important in a functioning relationship.

8. He’s besties with Tiger Woods

‘Let’s do shots!’ Actually… I’m not sure if I want that guy around my girlfriend.

7. But he’s on track to take over from Tiger as top dog

6. He bought this house and then sold it

No biggie.

5. He has the bantz with Maria Sharapova

And we don’t use the ‘B’ word lightly.

4. He gets to ride around in cop cars

Admittedly, he almost lost the Ryder cup for Europe by mixing up his tee-time. But he got there!

3. His buddies are pretty cool

G-Mac and Darren Clarke know all the cool spots in Orlando.

2. He’s living the life in America

The San Francisco Giants left him throw out the first pitch for example

1. He gets to choose between Ireland AND  Team GB at the Olympics

Lucky! Two countries. That’s good, right?
