Rory McIlroy: “I hate LIV but PIF is different”

“I still hate Liv Golf and I hope it will disappear. The Public Investment Fund (Pif) is something different from Liv, however, which I am convinced will not be part of the new alliance with the PGA Tour and the DP World Tour”.

Thus Rory McIlroy, former number 1 in the world and now third in the world ranking, from Canada and on the eve of the Canadian Open (Pga Tour) spoke on the new green alliance sanctioned by Pga Tour, Dp World Tour and Pif.

Rory McIlroy, statements
“If I have to analyze the matter – underlined the Northern Irishman – looking to the future, I think it could represent an important partnership for the development of golf. But people who have left the PGA Tour, taken legal action against the circuit, damaging it, will not be able be welcomed here again.

I’m sure that won’t happen. Right now I feel a bit like the sacrificial lamb”, concluded McIlroy who, together with Tiger Woods, has been the main opponent of Liv Golf for two years now, the breakaway league of the green.
