SWING: Golf champion Rory McIlroy

FORMER president Bill Clinton has taken to Twitter to reassure Rory McIlroy that he is working on his short golf game.

He has told the world No 3 golfer that he is "only a few strokes behind my niece Fiona and nephew Simon".

McIlroy is no stranger to presidential tweets and has already sent one to President Obama promising him to help sort out his golf game.

Ex-president Clinton gave a shout-out to Rory this week and let the pro-golfer know that his putting still needed some attention and that he's honing his game with some other pros.

Last year Rory tweeted Obama after a state dinner saying: "Unbelievable experience at the White House last night! Big thanks to @BarackObama for the invite! We'll get that golf swing sorted soon!"

Mr Clinton is relatively new to Twitter, with less than 90 tweets to his credit despite having over one million followers.

He recently thanked Steve Colbert for giving him lessons in social media skills saying "look what you started".

Rory McIroy, on the other hand, has sent out over 2,500 tweets and has 1.7m followers, leaving Mr Clinton trailing.
