, Rory McIlroy blasts he would rather RETIRE than play in LIV Golf events scuppering Tiger Woods dream link-up

RORY MCILROY has claimed he would rather retire than play in LIV Golf events.

The PGA Tour and LIV Golf have agreed to merge after a year of feuding.

Rory McIlroy said he would rather retire than play in LIV Golf events

And McIlroy was asked about the prospect of playing LIV Golf events against the backdrop of a hearing in the US Senate that is scrutinising the merger.

Included in the hearing were documents that proposed McIlroy and Tiger Woods being given ownership of a LIV team, as well as a requirement that the pair play in ten events.

McIlroy, 34, was asked about the proposals – which were rejected by the tour.

He said: “If LIV Golf was the last place to play golf on earth I would retire. That’s how I feel about it.

“There’s quite a bit of apathy towards everything at the moment.

“There wasn’t a lot of new information there for me (in the Senate hearing), there maybe was for other people, but as I said, I’ve almost been too close to it over the last year and a bit so it’s nice to be able to try to distance myself a bit from it.

“I think I’m apathetic to all the noise around it and as long as the tournaments that I play keep on existing I’ll be very happy to play them and be a professional golfer and try to get a little bit closer every day to trying to master my craft.

“The thing that I’ve realised is, no matter what I do or say or try to show leadership, I’m going to be just fine.

“I’ve tried to step up for maybe the guys that didn’t have a voice early on, but I think with everything that’s transpired over the last few weeks the players are going to find themselves more and more at the table to try to get whatever that is they want out of it.

“Again, as long as I get to play the golf that I’ve known over the last 15 years of my career, I’ll be happy.”

Frequently Asked Questions

How can I make golf a good sport?

Golf is not a bad thing. It’s actually very healthy. Golfers have a longer life expectancy than non-golfers, according to studies. They also tend to be less stressed out, which means they’re happier people.

How can I improve golf scores?

These simple tips will help you improve your game of golf quickly and easily.

  1. Practice more and play less. You can improve your skills by practicing more. Exercising too often can lead to poor habits.
  2. Feel good. Sometimes you don’t feel like golf. Don’t force your self to do things you don’t like. Instead, find ways to make golf enjoyable again.
  3. Take breaks. Golfers like to take breaks during rounds to stretch, walk around, have lunch or just relax. Taking breaks allows your body to relax and helps you stay focused throughout the round.
  4. Drink water It is easy to forget how many drinks you have consumed while on the course. Make sure you drink enough water so that you aren’t dehydrated. It will keep you feeling hydrated before, during, & after your game.
  5. Healthy eating is key. Healthy foods like fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, whole grains, low-fat dairy products, and legumes will provide energy that will help you perform well on the course.
  6. Stay hydrated. Water is your best friend. It is recommended that you drink eight glasses of fluids per day. This includes plain water and water made with beverages such as coffee.
  7. Warm up properly. Begin your round by walking or running for five to ten minutes. Focus on becoming loose and limber.
  8. Keep your head down. It is important to look straight ahead when you tee up. Don’t look at the ball and pay attention to where it hits. Instead, keep your eyes on the hole.
  9. You should always wear proper form when you’re dancing. Proper form can mean different things to different people. You want to avoid hitting the target. Instead, you should aim to strike the ball in the center of the club face.
  10. Concentrate on the process. While there are several factors that contribute to a successful golf swing, focusing on the process will help you develop the most effective technique. If you struggle to keep your hands still, relax your grip. Focus on good posture, if you find it difficult to balance.

Which shot is the most important in golf?

How do I lower my handicap by 5 strokes on the golf course?

The first thing you must do is to improve your swing mechanics. Even though you know how to hold the golf club properly, if you aren’t feeling comfortable swinging it correctly, you won’t get the correct feedback from your body. Once you’ve learned how to hold the club correctly, you can focus on strengthening your flexibility and strength. Slowly start, then work your way up to greater distances. As you get better scores, your game will become consistent.

How can I improve my game of golf without having to practice?

Practicing is essential to improving your game. However, if you don’t possess the time or resources to consistently perform drills, you can still improve. Remember to always practice what you want to do. If you want to play faster, you need to focus on playing fast. If you wish to hit your shot farther, you need to focus on striking the target farther.

How To

How to Lower Your Golf Scores In Five Easy Steps

  1. Start with the right equipment. You’re going to want to invest in some good clubs and balls. To find the right club for you, it is best to learn from someone who plays golf. If you don’t know anyone who plays golf, ask around at your local driving range. They might even give you a free lesson just because they like seeing new faces!
  2. Practice makes perfect. This is a well-known fact, but practice is essential if you want to improve your game. It doesn’t really matter if you are playing with friends or solo; practicing is crucial. When you do begin to practice, keep track of your progress. Note everything that you do in order to track your progress.
  3. Play more. At first, you might feel that you spend too much on your golf gear. This will make it difficult to get out there enough. Once you get into the swing of things, you will find that you actually enjoy playing. The next step is to increase the frequency of your play. Try to play at least three rounds per week. This would mean that you play one round 18 holes on weekends and two rounds 9-holes during the week.
  4. Don’t forget to eat well. A lot of people think that they’re doing their bodies a favor by skipping breakfast and eating only after lunch. This isn’t healthy. Instead, make sure you eat something before going out. Ideally, you’d want to eat a small snack containing protein, carbohydrates, and fat. You can also have a light meal made up of lean proteins, vegetables, and other healthy foods when you get there.
  5. Drink plenty of water. Drinking lots water can prevent dehydration from leading to muscle aches and headaches. Water is vital for optimal performance.
