SEVEN tips to cultivate your bromance

2014-08-20 12:14
Cape Town - "Bromance" is the word of the day and we look at how to cultivate your sporting bromance with tips from Tiger Woods and Rory McIlory.

There is certainly no bigger bromance in world sport than the one shared by elite golfers Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy.

But just how does one turn a rival into a "bestie" you ask?

Here are Sport24's top SEVEN tips for cultivating your bromance.

1. Change you outfit (read clubs) to that of your buddy.

Rory went from Titleist to Nike and his game went from good to bad but in time (as with all relationships) things are back to better than ever for Rory (and Tiger).

2. Go on holiday together.

Golfing holidays can really make you close (really close), as Tiger and Rory learnt after a trip to China for their exhibition match in 2012.

Rory and Tiger often sneak away for little trips to China. Have you seen Rory happier?

It's not often just the two of them though.

3. Don't be afraid to get close.

A case of keep your friends close and your enemies closer perhaps? Nah, these two are the real deal!

4. Share a meal or drink together every now and then.

Honestly, have you ever seen Tiger happier? Ever?

5. Tweet @ each other!

Nothing makes your bestie feel special like a mention or two on social media. 

This after the pair appeared on The Tonight Show. Read all about that story HERE!

And then Rory reciprocated later that day. Cute.

6. Don't forget to have fun!

It doesn't have to be all work and no fun for you and your friend, even if you're competing for millions of dollars every weekend!

7. Do the Ice Bucket Challenge together.

Now this is only for those who are serious about their bromance! 

8. Secret EIGHTH hint! Say something nice about each other every now and then!

“I didn’t play particularly well, but I scored,” said Tiger, way back in 2012 during the FedEx Cup playoffs before adding “Rory on the other hand played beautifully?”.

Rory spoke on the tonight show of his respect for Tiger and his outstanding career: "I've gotten to know Tiger over the last few years. And I guess this little run that I'm on, it makes me appreciate what he's done in the past."

"I mean just phenomenal just to keep a run like his going. And he's done like way more than me. So it makes you appreciate how hard he worked and how dominant a figure he was in our game."

I'm sure Tiger loved those kind words Rors!
