Unsurprisingly, Rory McIlroy has come out in praise of the court's decision to rule against LIV Golf trio, Talor Gooch, Matt Jones, and Hudson Swafford, in their bid to have their PGA Tour bans rescinded for the FedEx Cup play-off events.
The first play-off event, the FedEx St. Jude Championship, begins tomorrow, before the BMW Championship and the Tour Championship complete the trio of play-off tournaments.
McIlroy Praises Decision On LIV Golf Players
Speaking at a pre-tournament press conference, McIlroy gave his take on the decision to uphold the PGA Tour's ban on LIV Golf members.
From my vantage point common sense prevailed and I thought it was the right decision. It lets us focus on the important stuff, which is the golf. We can all move forward and not have that sideshow going on for the next few weeks, which is nice.”I don’t feel like it’s my job to be up here and sticking up for the PGA Tour or being a spokesperson, it’s just the role I have found myself in. I feel when I then get myself inside the ropes I feel that no-one can get to me and that’s really nice. It’s made the golf more enjoyable; if anything it has probably helped my golf.”
