Rory McIlroy on the LIV Golfer who texted him: He told me to shut up

Rory McIlroy is a fierce fighter against LIV Golf. It seems that this provoked a reaction from Sergio Garcia, who also sent him a message! "He [Garcia] was basically telling me to shut up about LIV, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah,” McIllroy said talking to the Irish Independent.

"I was pretty offended and sent him back a couple of daggers and that was it." Sergio Garcia is sure of his decision and wants to be part of LIV Golf! “I can only speak for myself, but I've definitely made the right decision.

I feel like I'm where I want to be. Obviously, I knew some of the things that might happen if I joined here, but at the end of the day, as we're seeing… you can see that some of the guys on the other side don't really want me there”.

Sergio Garcia talks about Ryder Cup

Garcia, as well as the other members of LIV Golf, will probably not have the right to perform at the Ryder Cup. "I don't want to be a burden to anyone and even less in a Ryder Cup.

I'd rather be away from that as much as it hurts and make sure that Europe has the best chance of winning than me being there and three or four guys that are going to be there are going to be upset or something”. There is controversy surrounding LIV Golfers and whether they deserve to be part of the Ryder Cup, and Europe's Ryder Cup captain Luke Donald spoke about the situation; “What’s going on in men’s professional golf at the moment is still kind of up in the air and I’m trying not to think about it,” Donald said talking to Golf, by TourMiss.

“I know there’s a court hearing coming up in February with the European Tour and LIV, so we are going to have to wait and see where it goes from there. And while I may be good friends with guys like Lee (Westwood), Sergio (Garcia) and many others, I am sure they know that my role is not to be political, nor is it my job to have any influence on those decisions.

It’s not like I am coming out saying ‘this and that’, so far I’ve not had to face that”.
