Why misfiring McIlroy needs Sunshine State swing
22/02/2021 | sport | golf | 421
Rory McIlroy missed the cut last week for the first time in 30 PGA Tour events but while underlying statistics suggest a deterioration in form, here's why the Florida-swing offers cause for optimism.

There is no questioning that McIlroy has a natural ability.
However there are 2 recurring questions which are regularly asked.
The first relates to judgement, he too often plays unnecessarily risky shorts in favour of a more simple ones which would keep his ball in play.
Also his putting isn’t consistent enough at the top level.
The second is whether he still has the appetite and desire.

Arithmetic clearly not your strong point but you make valid points nonetheless. Perhaps an established caddy would help the first? His putting has always been streaky and that hasn't stopped him winning 4 majors, the Players , the Tour Championship, Fed Ex cup/Race to Dubai etc.
Your last point is more difficult to quantify but, particularly in respect of majors, perhaps he wants it too much?

Going solely by Majors =20th in the history of the game (and still only 31) played by millions worldwide but you think he's only 'ok'.

Golf not your subject really is it.

To use an equivalent solo sport, how much adoration would the =20th best ever tennis player get?

Where did I say your opinion wasn't? I merely point out that you appear to know little about the history of golf if you think he is merely 'OK' given his record. That has nothing to do with elitism.

Neither is being inconsistent and boring a sign of an 'ok' golfer either. Tiger still loses 7/8 out of 10 tournaments he's ever entered an Faldo wasn't exactly charismatic. Done ok though ??

MaksiNorway's constant deliberate misspelling of McIlroy's name and general rantings against all Irish golfers does make one wonder if his boyfriend left him for a ubiquitous beautiful Irish red head. ??

Sad way for arguably the GOAT to end his career if it comes to pass that Tiger cannot play competitively again.

I note Leslie Thornton has popped up with his distasteful comments. Vile man.

I've asked several times, but MACsi offers no explanation as to why he can't spell Rory's surname correctly. Or GMac's or McGinley's for that matter. At least he spells MacIntyre correctly so that should stand him in good stead in the coming years.

Nice article about Bob McIntyre.

Apparently he will be taking America by storm.
That was put forward to Pat Reed and Bryson who didn't know who he was.

Will get back to you regarding Bob Mc.
Having my post removed below did I strike a nerve there? Does the truth hurt Maksi? . ???????? Removed
