Tiger Woods had some interesting advice for Rory McIlroy for this week’s Shell Houston Open

Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy — Getty ImagesIf you've ever read stories, or books, about Tiger Woods you've heard that the guy has a pretty crude sense of humor. He comes off like a locker room guy that likes messing with his buddies on tour just like we do with our friends during a round of 18 holes on a random Saturday. So it shouldn't surprise you that Woods texted his new best buddy, Rory McIlroy, after the Arnold Palmer Invitational. McIlroy, who spent the weekend at a municipal golf course in Miami instead of playing at Bay Hill, is in the field this week at the Shell Houston Open and mentioned that he got an interesting text from Woods.
