Watching Rory McIlroy during the first round of the Open, you'd swear he was playing without a care in the world. It seemed that all of the furore caused by his comments about the Olympics had been forgotten.
And yet, immediately after his round - he was back talking about it again. Why? We're not sure.
McIlroy clearly felt the need to attempt to defend his controversial comments, and has decided to stand firm and tell people what's what:
I decided to stop dancing around the issue and tell everyone what I thought.
I've thought about Olympics and golf for the last seven years and this is just how I feel.
Some people don't like it, I get that; but it's my opinion. I don't think anyone can blame me for being too honest. It was seven years of trying to give the politically correct answer and finally I just cracked.
McIlroy has been widely criticised for Tuesday's comments. Some Olympians don't like how he's treating the event, and other golfers are questioning why he doesn't want to grow the game.
The Northern Irishman did want to clarify his comments on growing the game with the Olympics:
I feel I've done my bit to grow the game.
It's not like I'm uninterested and golf is a great vehicle to instil values in kids. I'm an ambassador for the PGA Junior League and I've used my success in golf in a very positive way.
Fair play to Rory for telling it like it is, but maybe we don't need to be talking about this every day between now and the Olympics in three weeks time.
