“I really didn’t like the way he looked.”
Rory McIlroy (Northern Ireland), the world No. 1 in men’s golf, revealed his negative feelings toward Patrick Reed (USA) without filtering. The two are participating side by side at the DP World Tour Dubai Desert Classic held in Dubai, UAE.
McIlroy is playing the role of a watchman protecting the American Professional Golf (PGA) tour with Tiger Woods (USA), the ‘golf emperor’, against LIV Golf, which is supported by Saudi Arabia’s sovereign wealth fund. On the other hand, Reed, the 2018 Masters Champion, has left the PGA Tour to play for LIV Golf.
McIlroy’s remarks are as follows: When McIlroy was practicing at the practice range, Reed said hello, but McIlroy ignored it, and it was reported that Reed threw a wooden tee at McIlroy in a rage.
When asked about the truth of this report at a press conference on the 26th (Korean time), McIlroy said, “It is true that I ignored Reed’s greetings.” But when Reed came over and said ‘Hi’, I really hated seeing him.” 카지노
He then expressed displeasure, saying that Reed’s complaint was delivered to his home on Christmas Eve, saying, “I’m trying to enjoy a happy time with his family, but how would I feel if someone came and filed a complaint?”
McIlroy said, “If I were Reed, I wouldn’t say hello or ask for a handshake in that situation.” .
Prior to this, in an interview with Golf Digest, Reid said, “I shook hands with McIlroy’s caddy at the driving range, but McIlroy looked at me and pretended not to know. He said, “I didn’t throw a tee. He lightly flicked it with his finger as a joke.”
Meanwhile, not only Reed, but also many transfer players from LIV golf, such as Ian Poulter (England), Henrik Stenson (Sweden), and Adrian Otegi (Spain), are participating.
McIlroy is arguing that the DP World Tour, like the PGA Tour, should be banned from participating in LIV golf transfer players, so the results of this tournament are attracting attention.
