A model who tried to woo Rory McIlroy at the WGC Bridgestone Invitational may not have had much luck with that pursuit, but she did manage to make an impression on golf observers.

Ashley Bongiovanni was caught on television last week unabashedly trying to charm McIlroy:

McIlroy, of course, recently went through a high profile breakup with his longtime girlfriend, tennis star Caroline Wozniacki.

She has not yet explicitly admitted she was trying to seduce McIlroy. But Bongiovanni hasn't exactly denied her interest in the world's best golfer.

In an interview with No Laying Up, Bongiovanni played coy when asked if she knew she was on TV:

"I was just standing there and ... (laughter). ... the wind blew, and I have a lot of hair!" she said. "I pushed it out of my face, and I had my sunglasses on top of my head, and I just said, I’m just gonna hold my hair, then he smiled at me, and I dropped my hair."

Whether she's actually interested in McIlroy, and there's been no shortage of speculation about McIlroy's actual love interest, the extra attention can't be bad for Bongiovanni's profile. She says she's gained hundreds of new Twitter followers and is embracing her 15 minutes of fame.
