I know we all now live in a social media age where comments on posts can sometimes cut deep but the abuse received by Rory McIlroy today after putting up a video on Instagram was pretty shocking stuff by even the very lowest standards.

The video was a plank in honour of Gary Player who is celebrating his 82nd birthday.

The caption read...At the end of my gym session I remembered it was @gary.player 82nd birthday today. What better way to honor the legend and pioneer of fitness for golf than doing a plank. Hopefully everyone can join me today and #PLANK4PLAYER to honor the great man!

To be fair most of the comments were complimentary and encouraging but some were downright terrible.

One guy Chris Mugavero said....U should walk the plank. Cause ur game is dead. I just hope tiger comes back and just whips ur ass one more time.

I get a fair bit of abuse myself on social media but in my case maybe its deserved.

But surely this kind of hating on Rory McIlroy is the lowest of the low.  How many of these people would say this to his face?

You haters should be ashamed.
