And so the “Ice Bucket Challenge” has emphatically returned to golf. It didn’t technically start with the stars of the PGA Tour, but it ran rampant within its ranks nearly two months ago.

Now, the sport’s two biggest superstars have taken the challenge.

Amidst Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy spending their Monday together filming for “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” and a Nike Vapor Irons event, they dumped ice cold water on each other:

Woods and McIlroy were called out by Mark Parker, President and CEO of Nike: 

Challenge accepted @kobebryant. Our CEO and president, Mark Parker, has accepted the #ALSIceBucketChallenge to help fight Lou Gehrig’s disease. @rorymcilroyofficial, @tigerwoods & @tomsachs, you’re up. #justdoit

From Kobe Bryant to Mark Parker to Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy, and then on to Rafael Nadal and Wayne Rooney, among others – those are some heavy hitters in the wide world of sports right there.
