This was very cool.  Friends of mine who work in Augusta told me that Rory McIlroy went there last week along with New England Patriots QB Tom Brady for a Masters practice. But even better than that was that it turned into a quarterback convention of sorts with Peyton and Eli Manning there too.

Rory confirmed the story today, describing how impressive the three men were in the gym..

"Friday morning, I got in the gym about 6,'' said Mcilroy. "Brady walked in at 6:15, and the Mannings walked in at 6:30. That was my time to leave," he joked.
"I was just surprised he was in there; the Mannings, too. It's their offseason. They're so dedicated and committed to what they do, especially those two guys, Peyton and Tom, they're both in their mid-30s and they want to prolong their careers as much as they can."
"To see them putting so much into it even after 15 successful years as a career and they're still doing it -- it was great for me to see, it was inspirational in some ways. ... It was just nice to be in that little world for a couple of days and experience it.''

Wait....there's a gym in Augusta?
