“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.
The beginning is like this. When McIlroy was practicing at the practice range, Reed said hello to him, but McIlroy ignored it, and Reed, furious, threw a wooden tee at McIlroy. 온라인바카라
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.”
He continued, “The complaint that Reed filed was delivered to my house on Christmas Eve.” He 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.
