Rory McIlory: “Super League, I don’t share it”

“I play golf to carve out a place in history and to win the most important tournaments in the world. If, on the other hand, there is someone who does it just to earn as much as possible, he is free to behave in this way. But my idea about the nascent Super League it’s what I’ve always had: I don’t share it”. So Rory McIlroy, one of the protagonists this week of the DP World Tour Championship (scheduled from 18 to 21 November in Dubai), wanted to say about him on the new golf Super League sponsored by a Saudi fund.

Rory McIlory, statements

“Look at what happened – underlined the Northern Irishman – in football. I believe that in sport, as in life, there are also moral issues. I like to play in front of big golf fans and in historical tournaments, which excite me” .

A new career as a mental coach, alongside some of the best golfers in the world to drag them to success and support them in times of difficulty. This is what Michael Phelps, the most decorated athlete in the history of the Olympics, seems to have undertaken (also in the name of friendship). A great golf enthusiast, many now define him as the “secret weapon” of green totems such as Jon Rahm, number one in the world ranking, and Jordan Spieth, the Texan who, after a long period of crisis, is back in 2021 to amaze.

“He’s a good guy, he’s been through a lot as a sportsman and he’s the greatest Olympian of all time with a lot of tricks up his sleeve. I’m not going to reveal what I asked him but I can say that he has helped me a lot in the last period. “. These are the revelations of the Spaniard Rahm. For the legendary swimmer, nicknamed ‘the Baltimore Shark’, important words also came from Spieth, today 12 / o in the world ranking. “The mental aspect is something I’ve worked on a lot with him lately. I’m really lucky to have him around. Besides, he’s a great lover of golf and having him now more and more in our world is an added value.” This is the opinion of Spieth who yesterday, alongside Phelps, played the Pro-Am of the BMW Championship, the second event of the Play-Offs of the Pga Tour starting today in Owing Mills (USA), Maryland.
