Watch: Rory McIlroy practices for FedEx Cup at the best range in the world

By Gareth Hanna

Where do you like to hit golf balls? For most of us, the local practice round is as exotic as it gets - and if the sun's out, we're in paradise.

If you're Rory McIlroy, however, all sorts of doors get opened up. Even the gates at the Yankee Stadium.

The world number four teed it up in a corporate suite and launched balls down onto the NY Yankees' diamond.

The first point of note, he didn't seem in any discomfort, which will be a major boost as he prepares to put injury worries aside in the first FedEx Cup play-off, this weekend's The Northern Trust, taking place in New York.

But mostly, it just looked unbelievably good fun. Now to convince the bosses at Windsor Park to let me use the National Stadium like this...

Honoured to be a part of FedEx's donation to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital today with the PGA TOUR. #FedExCares
