Rory McIlroy has joined Lee Westwood and Martin Kaymer in saying “no” to the PGA Tour and the FedEx Cup for 2011.
If you’re not playing well in the States it can be a lonely place. But if you’re not playing well on the European Tour you still have plenty of mates to hang out with.
The $10,000,000 FedEx Cup prize isn’t enough to entice these great players to play here full time. They don’t like being forced to play in events they don’t want to play in, to be eligible for the Cup.
I wish I had enough dough in the bank and a good enough golf game to be able to say no like that… Maybe in my next life.
