It’s easy to think that, when it comes to golf, there are few things that remain on four-time-major-champion Rory McIlroy’s bucket list. But as he revealed recently to GOLF during a round of rapid-fire questions alongside his TGL teammate Keegan Bradley, there is a course where he hasn’t yet teed it up that he’s itching to play.

Spoiler alert: It’s not Pine Valley. McIlroy named the revered No. 1-ranked track as his favorite non-Tour-stop course. But as for that elusive, never-played course?

“Cypress Point,” McIlroy said. “Never played Cypress. I’ve been there for lunch three times, but never played the golf course.”

Someone get this man a tee time!

In addition to the course questions, McIlroy and Bradley spent nearly eight minutes pulling random questions from a glass bowl and taking turns sharing their answers. On the docket: topics like their favorite Taylor Swift song, the last pro golfer they texted, the last book they read, their favorite meal, dream foursome, and favorite memory with each other.

McIlroy and Bradley’s answers were fun, revealing and well worth a watch. Take a look at the full video of the rapid-fire question-draw session below, and for more great content, check out GOLF’s YouTube channel (which you can subscribe to here).
