When Rory McIlroy met Will Smith

Newly engaged golfer Rory McIlroy might be back to work on the golf course, but that doesn't mean it's all work and no play.
The Irish golf sensation, who this week announced his engagement to tennis pro Caroline Wozniacki, met A-lister Will Smith on the green in Dubai.
McIlroy is working on his swing while Smith is holidaying in the Emirates with wife Jada Pinkett Smith.
"Met the fresh prince aka Will Smith today at the golf course," Rory said on Twitter this evening. "Great guy and a good golf swing!"
Smith also enjoyed indoor skydiving with actor Tyrese during his sun soaked holiday.
And while McIlroy gets back to business, it has been revealed that he and Wozniacki are planning on a long engagement.
His new fiancee is also expected to return to the tennis court from a shoulder injury in time to participate in the Australian Open in the next two weeks.
And the pair -- both in the top echelons of their sport -- won't have very much spare time with their schedule of tournaments throughout the year, from this summer's Wimbledon for Wozniacki to a likely appearance by McIlroy in the Ryder Cup in Gleneagles, Scotland, in September.
The sporting couple, whose on/off relationship has attracted huge attention, announced their engagement on their Twitter accounts on Tuesday night, shortly after Rory went down on bended knee after the New Year's Eve fireworks in Sydney, Australia.
