Rory McIlroy has responded to the 'tee throw' story which blew up yesterday, after reports of him blanking Patrick Reed, and the American throwing a tee in his direction, emerged.

McIlroy admitted that he had no interest in conversing with Reed while practicing ahead of the Dubai Desert Classic, partly due to the LIV Golf feud but mostly due to the subpoena which McIlroy was given due to Patrick Reed's lawsuit against analyst Brandel Chamblee.

I didn't see it. I was down by my bag and he came up to me, and I was busy working and sort of doing my practise, and I didn't really feel like - I didn't feel the need to acknowledge him.

So I didn't see a tee coming my direction at all, but apparently, that's what happened. And if roles were reversed and I'd have of thrown that tee at him, I'd be expecting a lawsuit from him.

“I mean, exactly, right," continued McIlroy. "Like that's - I mean, I got a subpoena on Christmas Eve. I mean, I don't see your - like. you can't pretend like nothing's happening, right.

“Yeah, I was subpoenaed by his lawyer on Christmas Eve. So of course, trying to have a nice time with my family and someone shows up on your doorstep and delivers that, you're not going to take that well.

“So again, I'm living in reality, I don't know where he's living. If I were in his shoes, I wouldn't expect a hello or a handshake.”
