Rory McIlroy may have won the U.S. Open just two short years ago at the ripe age of 24, but cementing his place in golf's history doesn't prevent him from getting picked on by some of the game's elder statesmen.

A tweet out of ESPN showed Tiger Woods, a three-time winner of the U.S. Open, leaning in for a flick on the unsuspecting McIlroy's ear during the U.S. Open Champions Dinner on Wednesday evening.

The photo captured a moment of good natured fun between the two competitors, who are paired together in the first round of the U.S. Open at Merion.

It is safe to assume that Tiger will be taking things slightly more seriously out on the course.
