Rory Mcilroy achieved a big win in the Fed Ex Cup final and won the big prize. He is happy about his success, but he is already focused on the next challenges. In mid-September, McIlroy will be at the DP World Tour's BMW Championship.
He is not happy to see some well-known faces; Some Liv Golfers. “If you believe in something I think you have to speak up, and I believe very strongly about this. I really do,” McIlroy said for foxsports. “I hate what it’s doing to the game of golf.
I hate it. I really do. Like it’s going to be hard for me to stomach going to Wentworth in a couple of weeks’ time and seeing 18 of them there. That just doesn’t sit right with me. I believe what I‘m saying are the right things, and I think when you believe that what you’re saying is the right things, you’re happy to stick your neck out on the line”.
Rory McIlroy on the PGA Tour
McIlroy is part of the PGA Tour and intends to stay that way. He is clear in his intention to support the PGA Tour and to protect all those who attack the PGA. “Look, it’s been a tumultuous time for the world of men’s professional golf in particular.
I’ve been right in the middle of it. I’ve picked a great time to go on the Pga Tour board,” he said. “I‘ve been in the thick of things. I guess every chance I get, I’m trying to defend what I feel is the best place to play elite professional golf in the world.
It’s in some ways fitting that I was able to get this done today to sort of round off a year that has been very, very challenging and different”.
