Rory, Rory, Rory

I know it’s Tuesday and not my usual posting day, but I have to get some thoughts down on this Rory McIlroy situation.

The bottom line is that it is terrible.  I hate to see players in any sport get hurt.  Rory is not my favorite player and I have never been able to put a finger on why, but this sucks.  This puts a damper on the Open Championship.  It will be a negative to not have the defending champion absent from the event.

I have seen some say that it could be a 10 day recovery period.  I think Rory should absolutely not play the Open at St. Andrews.  The injury needs the proper time to recover and to avoid the risk of re-injury.  I can say confidently from watching the instances of Tiger’s reoccurring injuries, that I do not want to see the same with Rory.

Another issue that has been raised is that he shouldn’t have been playing soccer.  These guys can’t live a life that only involves golf.  I would have probably liked for him to play after the majors, but that didn’t happen.

Overall, hopefully Rory can have a speedy recovery and get back for the PGA Championship.  But don’t rush it!  The Open Championship will still be thrilling and I will still be watching.  Golf is bigger than one player.  See you next week.
