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.

He needs something for sure, but the PGA Tour's Florida swing is probably not what is required.

He needs to get back to his old enjoyment of the game and play without too much thought, and that as others have said probably means getting a caddie to 'help' by bouncing ideas and thoughts off.

He is probably also missing his new family so ought to be cut some slack.

Yeah bless him. Must be hard competing against all these automatons without families they maybe missing.
He has been cut so much slack since his last major.
So many corner's turned, new philosophies & techniques.
The way some people go on about him is like someone saying borussia Dortmund are the pinnacle of European football.

There is always someone who entertains with their lack of knowledge, let alone understanding ??

In relation to the others at the top of the World list, he can't.

Compared to the average club golfer he can.

That's a harsh thing to say.
There's only 113 better putters on PGA tour alone better than him.
He's a young man, give him time for him to haul himself up that list.
Of course being outside top 100 in practically anything else except driving hinders him but it's not his fault there are better golfers than him about. And have been for better part of a decade.
Poor forgotten mite.

Arrogant Rory misses quite a few cuts. He's not the messiah of golf that he thinks his is, not by a long chalk.

Does he think that? Or does the Media want him to be that.

The ranking system allows under performing players to wallow around in the top 50 or so players in the world for too long. If it were altered, so player who were not performing would drop down the ranks quicker, you may see a bit more concern and effort from certain players

Yes positive play increases your standing, negative play should see a reduction and not stand still

First of all May I congratulate England Golf for getting us back playing the same time as rugby.Great lobbying and well worth our affiliation fees!!
As regards Rory I find him compulsive viewing because he plays like he does.If he got a proper caddie and a top coach he would be boring and just win everything!

Should have been back way sooner than Rugby. No physical contact in Golf, unless you play it differently to me.

Has become 2nd page news. Wont threaten Faldo on 6 majors. Nice guy who has had a brief spell at the top. Biggest mistake was employing a friend as caddy. Consigned to golfing history now.

I'd rather like an out of form McIlroy than Faldo any day. Arrogant bloke, no wonder he was a useless Ryder Cup Captain. Great player though.
