McIlroy to Spieth: “Get a Bigger Plane”

He’s going to need a bigger plane.

At least that’s what Rory McIlroy thinks, in a playful Twitter exchange between the world No. 1 golfer and Longhorn prodigy Jordan Spieth. The latter tweeted that he needed some more room for his baggage, jokingly mentioning that McIlroy, the 2014 Open Championship and PGA Championship winner, could help him in that area.

The breakout 21-year-old who finished second at this year’s Master’s Tournament took the jab in stride, making a dig of his own at McIlroy’s “senior status,” he of the ripe old age of 25.

That’s when fellow 25-year-old Rickie Fowler, who has been in contention to win multiple majors this year, chimed in to let Spieth know that his youth movement hasn’t quite reached the big time yet.

At the very least, Fowler is giving props to 2013’s PGA Rookie of the Year. Spieth may not have the major victory or jet of his own yet, but with some great finishes—and almost $4 million in earnings—in 2014, he’s certainly on his way.
