ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — Professional golfer Rory McIlroy and Bills quarterback Josh Allen were at Oak Hill on Tuesday — and both discussed how they would like to meet the other.
McIlroy was speaking at a press conference on Tuesday morning and discussed how he was connected to Rochester through his wife Erica — an Irondequoit graduate. He also touched upon some local customs.
“I didn’t know a ton about this part of the world pre-2014, 2013, I guess, the first time we played here. I’ve only had one garbage plate in my life. I haven’t went overboard with that,” McIlroy said.
However, he notices that Bills quarterback Josh Allen is a huge golf fan — he hasn’t met him yet, but he would love to.
“I know he’s a big golf fan. I haven’t met him. I think he played Pebble Beach pro-am this year, but I didn’t play there,” Mcilroy said. “Yeah, I’d obviously love to meet him.”
Later that day, Allen appeared at Oak Hill in the flesh with four other Bills players at Beyond the Green to answer questions. When asked about meeting up with McIlroy, he spoke highly of the golfer.
“We never met, but I think he’s an honorary member here at Oak Hill — I’m now a member, so it kind of makes sense,” Allen said. “I’d love to meet him, I’m a big fan of him, I’ve been a big fan for a long time. Would love to see him get back to his winning ways, that’d be pretty fun.”
