Just read an interesting article about the fact that Rory McIlroy wasn’t impressed with the weather conditions at the recent British Open, so much in fact that he has blamed this for his performance.
McIlroy, who finished joint 25th despite being favourite to win at the start of the week, was quoted as saying “There’s no point in changing your game for one week of the year…”
This has apparently angered some senior players and I can understand why. In my opinion he has belittled the importance of The Open with that statement, and also the weather plays a huge part in golf all year round – it’s one of the great things about the game that you have to take this factor into account before every shot that you take.
It’s also a leveller – the conditions were the same for every golfer on the course.
Have a read of the article here and let me know your thoughts…
