Tiger Woods delighted the golf public with his fight against LIV Golf. Namely, Woods decided to fly to the BMW Tour and hold a meeting regarding LIV Golf and the threat that comes from them. Rory McIlroy is one of those who think that Woods has done a great thing.
“I think it shows how much he cares about the Tour. I think it shows how much he cares about the players that are coming through and are going to be the next generation.” – Rory McIlroy said, as quoted by BBC.
Rory McIlroy; They can’t really sell Tiger Woods
Rory McIlroy emphasized that Woods is the kind of person the PGA Tour has been missing.
His word could do a lot. “Like it or not, they can’t really sell Tiger Woods any more. The Tour had an easy job for 20 years. They don’t have Tiger – yes, they’ve got a bunch of us and we’re all great players, but we’re not Tiger Woods.
We’re moving into a different era, and we just have to think about things a little differently. He is the hero that we’ve all looked up to. His voice carries further than anyone else’s in the game of golf. His role is navigating us to a place where we all think we should be.
I think it’s pretty apparent that whenever we all get in the room there’s an alpha in there, and it’s not me.” The PGA Tour golfers appear united and clear in their goals and intentions; We want to remain part of the PGA Tour!
“I think the one thing that came out of it, which I think was the purpose, is all the top players on this Tour are in agreement and alignment of where we should go going forward, and that was awesome. We need to get the top guys together more often than we do.”
