Rory McIlroy throws support behind Toronto Raptors after Canadian Open win
Rory McIlroy broke out a Kawhi Leonard jersey after the golfer won the Canadian Open on Sunday.
McIlroy, who shot a 61 in the final round of his seven-stroke victory, held up the Toronto Raptors jersey as he made his way toward the podium to receive his trophy.

The Northern Irishman then made a bold prediction ahead of Monday’s Game 5 between the Toronto Raptors and Golden State Warriors.
“Raptors in five!” he yelled to a cheering crowd.
Hopefully, for the Raptors, McIlroy’s prediction doesn’t have a Drake-like curse effect on Toronto. Teams and players have lost after getting a boost from rapper Drake.
The Raptors are on the verge of winning their first (and Canada’s first) NBA title, having a 3-1 lead over the Warriors in the series.
