Sad news 😔:Rory McIlroy ends LIV Golf speculation once and for all with painful message to Greg Norman

Rory McIlroy has shut down reports that he is ready to make a shock move to LIV Golf, with the Northern Irishman pledging his loyalties to the PGA Tour.

On Sunday City A.M. reported that McIlroy was ‘close’ to signing a deal worth £682 million ($850m) with the breakaway circuit, in what would prove the ultimate u-turn. The Northern Irishman however ended any chance of him leaving the PGA Tour once and for all on Tuesday.

Speaking on the range at Harbour Town, McIlroy told Golf Channel: “I honestly don’t know how these things get started, I’ve never been offered a number [potential deal] from LIV and I’ve never contemplated go

think I’ve made it clear over the past two years that I don’t think it’s something for me. That doesn’t mean I judge people who have gone and played [LIV Golf]. One of the things I’ve realized over the past two years is people can make their own decisions for whatever they think is best for themselves and who are we to judge them for that? For me, my future is here on the PGA Tour.”

Quizzed on whether he knew the origin of the rumour regarding his future, a confused McIlroy replied: “I have no idea. Over the past two years there’s been so many rumors of guys, and the one thing I’ve realised as well is guys need to keep an open mind.” A number of big names have of course opted to make the Saudi switch over the past seasons, including his Ryder Cup ally in Jon Rahm.
