Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy have always got on well and are frequently filmed and photographed together in commercials.

But McIlroy could not resist poking fun at the American when he posted a very bizarre fancy dress photo on his Twitter account along with the following caption:

“Xmas tradition that my kids love. Mac Daddy Santa is back!”

Rory simply had to respond, firing back the simple and cutting riposte:

“Wake me up when it’s 2017.”

Fantastic! Merry Christmas, Tiger and Rory…
