Golf champion Rory McIlroy was seen Monday night at Equinox Coral Gables, prepping for his battle for the top spot in world rankings against Tiger Woods, who just so happened to be recently spotted at Equinox South Beach. McIlroy was spotted with a workout partner (not his famous tennis playing girlfriend , Caroline Wozniacki) who encouraged him on the Versa Climber and while he completed several exercises on the cable machines. Looking strong and confident for the Wells Fargo Championship, McIlroy wrapped up his workout with stretching and crunches on the fitness ball and left after two hours of intense training.
