Golf legend Gary Player was on Talksport show, My Sporting Life, over the weekend to talk about his career.

The conversation turned to Rory McIlroy and his poor 2013 form. After Player talked about how much he believed in McIlroy as a golfer and how he thought his preparation recently had been wrong, he took aim at the Holywood man's relationship with Caroline Wozniacki.

“When you’re in love as a young man naturally golf seems to take second place for a while. It’s natural. Love is still the greatest thing that ever happens in our lives.

“But the thing is for a man like Rory with talent galore he’s got to make sure he has a woman like I’ve got, who has been married [to me] for 56 years, that has only encouraged me to do well and made sacrifices.

“He’s got to be intelligent and find the right wife. If he finds the right wife, if he practices and if he’s dedicated, he could be the man.”

Hey Rory, maybe Gary's wife has a younger sister.
