So why did Rory comment on Mark’s shot and not anyone elses? Well Mr. Wahlberg makes his rounds. He is clearly buddy buddy with Bubba Watson, you can’t even tell who’s who because they’re both lefties and wearing matching shirts. He also had a nice lunch and round of golf with Rory a few months ago where the golfer got way more than tips. Rory gave Wahlberg a new driver, that he happened to be testing out at the Pro-Am this week!
