The last time Rory McIlroy won a major championship, Barrack Obama was president, Donald Trump was a billionaire TV star, and Joe Biden was just dumb, but not yet demented.
In other words, it’s been a long time since the one-time wunderkind claimed a major victory.
Despite going on eight years now without a meaningful win, the always-classless Northern Irishman thinks it would be better for the game if a LIV golfer such as Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka, Bryson DeChambeau or Louis Oosthuizen didn’t win The Open Championship.
“Selfishly, for me, yes, I think it would be better for the game,” said McIlroy when asked if it would be better for the game if The Open winner was not part of LIV Golf.
He continued, “But at the end of the day, everyone that’s here has the same opportunity to go out there and try to win a Claret Jug, regardless of what Tour they play on.”
“Or whatever that (LIV Golf) is,” he condescendingly added.
Imagine for a second if Brooks Koepka said it would be better for the game if a golfer from the PGA Tour monopoly didn’t win The Open?
The media would go ballistic.
