I just read your comments regarding the Olympics and, well… I love you, man:
“I don’t feel like I’ve let the game down at all. I didn’t get into golf to try and grow the game. I got into golf to win championships and win major championships, and all of a sudden you get to this point and there is a responsibility on you to grow the game, and I get that.
“But at the same time that’s not the reason that I got into golf. I got into golf to win. I didn’t get into golf to get other people into the game.
“I get where different people come from and different people have different opinions. But I’m very happy with the decision that I’ve made and I have no regrets about it.
“I’ll probably watch the Olympics, but I’m not sure golf will be one of the events I watch.”
Asked what events he will take in, the 27-year-old offered a final dig: “Probably the events like track and field, swimming, diving – the stuff that matters.“
It’s not too late to reconsider your marriage plans.
Rory is already the first Olympics hero of the 2016 Summer games. The Stuff That Matters. Let’s keep the Olympics focus where it belongs. Funny how Rory wound up being the one fighting to restore Olympics purity.
Michael Phelps doesn’t belong in Rae’s Creek, and golf doesn’t belong in the Olympics.
