I'm guessing that they "Tweeted" each other these messages, in which case they were on the web for anybody to read.
With the BBC having shown the mini documentary earlier this week, which mentioned McIlroy getting back together with his childhood sweetheart, and how this affected his game, I did find this thread topical and of the moment! But ........ I am the lowest common denominator!
