Rory McIlroy Slams Wentworth Chiefs After Controversial Late Finish at BMW Championship

, Rory McIlroy Slams Wentworth Chiefs After Controversial Late Finish at BMW Championship

Rory McIlroy Expresses Frustration

Professional golfer Rory McIlroy has criticized the organizers of the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth after the second round finished in near darkness on Friday evening. McIlroy described the situation as a "s***show" and questioned why there were so many players on the 17th and 18th holes delaying play. The Northern Irishman called for a solution that involves fewer players in the field to avoid a chaotic ending.

McIlroy's Final Putt Secures Weekend Play

Despite the controversial finish, McIlroy managed to secure his place for the weekend's action by sinking a 45-foot putt on the 18th hole. The birdie helped him finish at one under par, ensuring all 12 European Ryder Cup stars also made the cut alongside their captain, Luke Donald.

Drama on and off the Course

While McIlroy's performance and frustration stole the headlines, there was additional drama during the second round. Thomas Bjorn, a former Ryder Cup captain, got into an altercation with a drunken fan and even went behind the ropes to confront the spectator. Another incident involved golfer Bob MacIntyre, who will be McIlroy's teammate in Rome. MacIntyre faced insults from a disgruntled supporter who had bet against him, highlighting the presence of gambling in golf.

Despite the chaotic scenes and off-course distractions, the tournament at Wentworth continued, with Ludvig Aberg and Sebastian Soderberg sharing the lead after round two.
