Golf Channel analyst Brandel Chamblee got the attention of a certain someone Tuesday when he said the only thing giving him concern about the future of four-time major champion Rory McIlroy is his gym routine, and warned him to be "wary" of what happened to Tiger Woods.

McIlroy made a big statement later in the day without saying anything, responding to a Golf Channel tweet with this video of himself in the gym, squatting quite a bit of weight.

This prompted Gary Player, a man who occasionally goes by the nickname "Mr. Fitness" with nine major championships under his belt, to chime in. In the least surprising news ever, he's firmly on Team Rory.

Chamblee will be joining Morning Drive on Wednesday to expand on his comments.
