Rory McIlroy has answered dozens of questions from his Twitter followers.
The answers were highly revealing. Not only did we learn that he will play twice in Florida next season, at the Honda Classic and Doral, we also discovered that he thinks Rickie Fowler should win the PGA Tour Rookie of the Year award.
