Breaking: Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy’s relationship has ‘soured’

Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy’s relationship has reportedly ‘soured over the past six months’, per a report in Golf Digest. 

If we are to rewind six months, that takes us to the start of December 2023 and just two months after McIlroy had a bust-up with Woods’ former caddie Joe LaCava – who now loops for Patrick Cantlay – at the Ryder Cup.

McIlroy, 34, confirmed he had two missed call and three text messages from Woods, 48, in the aftermath of his heated spat with LaCava. That was also a period in time where McIlroy confirmed he had removed his chair from the table on the PGA Tour policy board, which Woods agreed to sit on a month before the start of the Ryder Cup.

Should the Woods-McIlroy relationship have indeed ‘soured’, per Golf Digest’s latest report, then it could certainly make their new TGL a tad awkward when it all starts up in early 2025. 

It was supposed to commence this January but a start date was pushed back 12 months after the stadium roof caved in. 

McIlroy and Woods are the brainchilds behind the tech-infused golf league, which will see a number of the world’s best players on the PGA Tour come together in six team rosters for some indoor, weeknight golf. 

McIlroy will not return to the PGA Tour policy board

Earlier today, McIlroy confirmed that despite putting up his hand to return to the PGA Tour policy board this month, he was unsuccessful.

He had wanted a quick return to try and help get the PGA Tour, PIF merger over the line and bring some form of unification back into the professional game. 

One tournament director went as far to say McIlroy was being urged back to the policy board by a number of people because current lead voice Cantlay was ‘ruining’ the PGA Tour. 

Two weeks ago, McIlroy claimed the PGA Tour, PIF merger had made little progress over the last eight months.
