Golf star Rory McIlroy has an All Blacks icon backing him at the US Masters this week.

All Blacks first-five eighth Dan Carter is in Augusta, Georgia, to watch the first men's major championship of the year and ran into two-time major winner McIlroy from Northern Ireland at the gym today.

Carter, who is on sabbatical, has done plenty of travelling in the past week; he attended the Hong Kong sevens, travelled to New York and has now popped up at Augusta.
