Rory McIlroy sounds the alarm before Masters tilt: “It sucks”


  • Rory McIlroy expresses frustration over the schism in men’s professional golf
  • He calls for unification to bring the best players back together

Rory McIlroy has voiced his disappointment over the division in men’s professional golf, stating that it is disheartening to not be able to compete against some of the best players in the world more regularly. In an interview with Golf Monthly, McIlroy highlighted the need for unification in the sport to bring the top players back together for the benefit of the game and the fans. He emphasized the importance of correcting the current fractured landscape to ensure a sustainable future for golf.

McIlroy’s comments come as he prepares for the Valero Texas Open and looks ahead to the Masters, where he will aim to complete the career grand slam. Seeking to end his major drought, McIlroy has sought guidance from renowned swing instructor Butch Harmon in hopes of improving his performance on the course.

Despite the challenges posed by the schism in men’s professional golf, recent discussions between PGA Tour and LIV Golf representatives have indicated a willingness to find a pathway forward. However, former European Ryder Cup captain Paul McGinley remains skeptical about the possibility of peace on the horizon.

On a positive note, McIlroy expressed confidence in his game ahead of the major season, stating that his performance in major championships has become more consistent in recent years. With upcoming major venues that suit his style of play, McIlroy is optimistic about his chances to contend for major titles.
