Rory McIlroy on Phil Mickelson PGA comments: "It’s bold and it’s, you know.."

Phil Mickelson surprised many with his comments regarding the PGA Tour. The former PGA Tour player criticized the PGA itself, which caused reactions, primarily from Rory McIlroy. “I guess for them to be talking the way they are, it’s bold and it’s, you know, I think there’s a ton of propaganda being used and all sorts of stuff.

I certainly don’t see the PGA Tour trending downward at all. All the talent, most, 95 per cent of the talent, is here. You’ve got people like Tom Kim coming through who that’s the future of our game”. Mickelson must be frustrated by the hate comments after going to LIV Golf.

“I don’t agree with what Phil said last week. I understand why he said it because of the position he is in, but I don’t think anyone that takes a logical view of the game of golf can agree with what he said”.


Rahm comments on Mickelson

Jon Rahm was also surprised. Mickelson is trying to provoke PGA Tour leaders and players, and the reasons are obvious. “I really, I really don’t know why he said that. There’s been some changes being made, but it doesn’t necessarily mean it’s going down, right? I truly don’t know why he said that.

Don’t know. I really, I really don’t know. I think there’s some great changes being made and great changes for the players on the Tour. I truly don’t know what drove him to say something like that”.


Northern Irishman, Rory McIlroy, is happy about a large number of talents on the PGA Tour and believes in the future of this competition. “I think the people that have decided to stay here and play these tournaments, they or we haven’t done anything differently than what we’ve always done, right? We’re playing these events, we’re PGA Tour members, we’re sticking to the system that has traditionally been there.

The guys that have went over to LIV, they have - they’re the ones that have made the disruption, they’re the ones that have sort of put the golf world in flux right now”.
