Rory McIlroy on LIV Golf regrets, Roy Keane, Tiger Woods, and pursuit of The Masters

Rory McIlroy hasn’t given up the fight on LIV Golf but he now admits it’s part of golf.

Rory McIlroy recently joined the English podcast “Stick to Football” and admitted he’s been too judgemental about LIV Golf and also outlined his troubles at Augusta National trying to win The Masters.

Chatting to former football greats Roy Keane, Gary Neville, Jamie Carragher, and Ian Wright, 34-year-old McIlroy has softened his position on LIV Golf admitting he was too judgemental.

“I think it was a bit of a mistake on my part because I now realise that not everyone is in my position or in Tiger Woods’ position,” McIlroy said. “I can’t judge people for making that decision, so if I regret anything, it was probably being too judgemental at the start.”

“I wouldn’t say I’ve lost the fight against LIV, but I’ve just accepted the fact that this is part of our sport now. At the end of the day, we’re professional golfers and we play to make a living and make money, so I understand it.”

The podcast kicks off with a hilarious exchange where McIlroy recounts a story where Keane refused to sign an autograph for him when he was 12-years old.
