Rory Mcllroy Climbs “Rocky” Steps in Philadelphia

With this weekend’s U.S. Open being just outside of Philadelphia and yesterday being the last off day before play got started, Rory Mcllroy took in some of the sights of the historical city yesterday.

Included was a stop at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, a place made famous when Sylvester Stalone’s character ran up them in the fictional movie “Rocky”.

Just like thousands before him, the Palm Beach Gardens resident ran up the famed steps of the museum, racing his swing coach Michael Bannon to the top. He posted pictures of himself running the stairs in a Phillies hat and jersey to his twitter account with the caption “Can’t come to Philadelphia and not see the ‘Rocky’ steps!!”

Mcllroy was due to tee off today with Tiger Woods and Adam Scott at 1:14pm in the marquee pairing of the tournament. Heavy rain went through the Philadelphia area this morning resulting in a three hour and forty two minute weather delay that pushed the tee times of the afternoon golfers back. Mcllroy is now scheduled to tee off at 4:44pm.
