Comparing Rory McIlroy’s new home in Florida with Tiger Woods’ 10-acre estate about 10 miles to the north is in many ways reflective of the young 23-year-old’s emerging from the shadow of the 37-year-old aging superstar, Tiger Woods. A press conference yesterday announced Rory’s massive $250 million, 10-year contract with Nike vs. Tiger’s $100 million, 10-year deal in its final stages. Each owns homes in Florida, so the comparison is inevitable:Rory’s house is modest in comparison to Tiger’s, ½ the size, ½ the amenities, 1/10 the acreage, occupied by the love of his life, Tennis Superstar Caroline Wozniacki, vs. Tiger’s virtual Home Alone, self-imposed prison/privacy-like atmosphere.Rory’s happy cherubic face and bubbling girlfriend fills his stone & glass contemporary home with the exuberance of youth and happiness compared to Tiger’s white modern box of stoic architecture and the lonely guy who fell from grace living there. Rory lives virtually kitty-corner from Jack Nicklaus’ Bear’s Club real estate near all of the restaurants in Jupiter, while Tiger lives “way out”, isolated on Jupiter Island.Hopefully with both Tiger and Rory representing Nike, maybe Tiger can regain some of his rapid fall from grace and become a standout gentleman and return to his #1 status in the world of golf. Odds are against Tiger in this matchup, but Tiger has bounced back before and Rory hasn’t proved his non-susceptibility to the temptations of stardom.

The next match: April 8th; site: Augusta, Georgia, The Masters. Will Rory win his first green jacket and 2nd consecutive major or will Tiger win his 15th major and his 4th green jacket?
