Rory McIlroy enjoyed a Thanksgiving dinner with some home comforts - a bag of Tayto cheese and onion crisps.

Fresh from his  DP World Tour Championship - and topping the European Tour's Race to Dubai money list - the Holywood golfer enjoyed a turkey dinner yesterday.

This is what Thanksgiving looks like in Northern Ireland..... Bringing 2 cultures together ha. Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends out there! #gobblegobble #tayto #norniron 󾓬󾓦󾥶󾥢󾥹󾦆󾟝

The 26-year-old shared his preparations on Facebook with his near 1million followers.

But sticking to his roots, the world number three had to have a bag, or two, of Tayto on the side.
