The news is that Roy has made a stand against certain rules along with other players. The wish that Roy made might be granted soon. The plea posed by the world number two player in the European Tour is to make certain changes in the selection procedure that might include a dramatic overhaul. The chief executive has even shown his willingness to go along with the changes as he stated that the organization will not back away from making big changes.
McIlroy stated last week that the regulation about players having to be members of the Tour in order to be part of the biennial dust up event needs to be looked into.
Rory Mcllroy, the Irish golfer is not afraid when it comes to making changes in life.
However, as far as golf is concerned, he strongly believes in faith as it works well for him. He may be adamant, but that certainly does not make him less committed to his work. He is regarded as the world’s best golf player for obvious reasons. He has always disliked playing bad golf. This year the PGA was indeed a missed opportunity for the player. Mcllroy has not given up hope as his biggest inspiration is the masters. He is yet to win the major and the tournament is the most appropriate opportunity that he should grab.

Rory, who has played in Masters a total of 7 times with a 4th spot finish previous year his best result, missed the pre-tournament event just only one time. In that year, i.e.in 2011, Northern Irishman went to the back 9 on Sunday in the search for that green jacket, just to fall into a tie for fifteenth after a final-round 80.
Smylie Kaufman, during their WGC Dell Match Play game around 2 weeks ago, was saying Rory McIlroy regarding his visit to the Augusta National a few days earlier, getting all set for his first Masters. Rory wanted to know what he thought of this place.
McIlroy told that he told that he went to do some prep work and it appears that there are a lot of birdies up there. Now a veteran of 7 Masters, Rory might just smile.
McIlroy chuckled saying. He told Smylie that he had a tale regarding the day a series of birdies was made. In fact, it was a record number of birdies.
Rory recalled that he played with Anthony Kim when he made eleven birdies. Yeah, there are plenty of birdies out there.
It’s true that Rory McIlroy is the numero uno golfer at the moment but the Irish legend seems to be a true sportsman when it comes to approving other champions of the game. The Northern Irishman has already hailed the rising game of the Masters champ Jordan Spieth & has openly admitted him as his genuine strong rival.
In one his latest interviews, the great Irish golfer acknowledged that he would need to be more serious about the game if he has to retain his #1 stature in the international golf.
A couple of weeks post his best-ever game at Augusta, very upbeat Rory got back to South Carolina for a Nike-sponsored event last Friday where he was completely open regarding his own feat & also that of Jordan in quite a revealing interview session.
