Rory McIlroy is off the fairways and has decided to put his feet up - on Facebook.

The Co Down golf superstar announced after the FedEx Cup that he would be offering a pair of his signed limited-edition Nike shoes on his Facebook page to one lucky fan.

The 26-year-old Holywood star posted a snap of the signed footwear yesterday with a caption explaining how to win.

"Just like this pic and I'll randomly choose a winner," he wrote. And in the space of five hours, more than 200,000 had 'liked' Rory's Facebook page to win the white and orange shoes.

McIlroy finished tied 16th in the Tour Championship last night in Atlanta, Georgia, which was won by Jordan Spieth.
