Watch: Rory loses arm-wrestling contest to junior

To paraphrase one Alfred Pennyworth, who incidentally was holding a golf club, "What good are all those pushups if you can't beat a high school kid in an arm-wrestling contest?"

For some much-needed context, world No. 1 Rory McIlroy made a surprise appearance at the Junior Invitational at Sage Valley on Friday and held a clinic before speaking to the event's participants later at night.

Post-clinic, it appears as though McIlroy accepted a challenge from Oklahoma commit Brad Dalke for an arm-wrestling contest. Take a look:

The question is whether McIlroy – you know, this guy – did the kid a favor and threw the contest. "His bicep balled up, so I think he was trying," Dalke told Golfweek.

Good enough for us. Game, Dalke.
