Rory on GC and Sky Sports Today at 4:30pm ET

In case you missed it, Rory will be on GC today and you might even get a tweet answered if you get involved.

Rory at THE PLAYERS

There are articles about this on both golfchannel.com and golfweek.usatoday.com if you'd like to read a bit more about it, but here's a brief section from the GC article:
GOLF Channel on Tuesday will air an enhanced encore broadcast of the 2019 PLAYERS Championship final round, featuring World No. 1 Rory McIlroy taking part in a live video feed that will air side-by-side on screen during the closing stretch of the telecast. McIlroy’s victory at THE PLAYERS contributed to a standout season that would later include a second FedExCup title and being voted by his peers as PGA TOUR Player of the Year.
It's going to be part of a simulcast by GC and Sky Sports. Brandel Chamblee from GC and Nick Dougherty from Sky Sports will both be there, asking questions and just generally giving Rory a hard time.

In addition, fans will be able to tweet at Rory -- and presumably at Brandel and Nick before Rory joins in -- using the #WatchalongWithRory hashtag.

Is it new golf? No. But this is something new for GC and Sky Sports, an experiment that should make for some interesting interactions between fans and hosts... and Rory. If it goes well, perhaps we'll see more things like this in the future.

At the very least, it's not just another replay. It's new programming at a time when we are inundated with replays... and that deserves a shout out.
