Four-time major champion Rory McIlroy underwent laser eye surgery, according to his official social media accounts.
Playing a sport where hand-eye coordination is enormously crucial, numerous professional golfers have undergone laser eye treatment over the years.
McIlroy didn't seem overly concerned with the procedure, equating his look to a K-9 cone that dogs often wear after surgery.
He most recently played at the DP World Tour Championship, where he locked up his third Race to Dubai title in four years.
The 26-year-old Northern Irishman isn't expected to tee it up again until the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship on the European Tour, which starts Jan. 21 in the United Arab Emirates.
