There might not be a more-entertaining pair of golfers to watch right now than Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods. The former is the No. 1 player in the world and the latter is arguably the greatest player of all-time.

McIlroy and Woods spent time on the course together today. The two were on the course at the same time for The Genesis Open's pro-am.

A funny video from the round has emerged on social media. It's since gone viral.

The video shows Woods basically daring McIlroy to hit a shot close to the pin. Woods is tending the pin as McIlroy hits his approach shot.

That's a point to McIlroy, who took to Twitter to address the video on Wednesday evening. "Thanks for hanging back to tend the pin, Tiger," McIlroy joked. "Almost needed you."

Hopefully we'll get more entertaining moments from Rory and Tiger when the tournament begins on Thursday morning. Both players are expected to contend at the top of the leaderboard.

The Genesis Open will be televised on Golf Channel from 2 to 6 p.m. E.T. on Thursday. The same TV schedule is set for Friday.
