McIlroy dismisses European players’ ranking complaints

Washington, Wednesday: Rory McIlroy says European players who decided not to travel to the United States for the US PGA Tour’s restart shouldn’t complain about missing out on world rankings points.

The Official World Golf Rankings decided to unfreeze the ranking system when the PGA Tour resumed at Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth, Texas, last week after a hiatus caused by the coronavirus pandemic. That didn’t sit well with some European players, including former world number one Lee Westwood of England, who felt the burden of self-isolating for two weeks upon arrival in the States and for two weeks when travelling back to Europe, was too much.

“I mean if you really care about your career and care about moving forward you should be here,” world number one McIlroy said Wednesday as he prepared to tee it up for the second straight week in the RBC Heritage at Harbour Town Golf Links in Hilton Head, South Carolina.
