An emotional battle intensified between Rory McIlroy (Northern Ireland) and Patrick Reed (USA), who plays for LIV Golf, which is sponsored by Saudi Arabia.
McIlroy, who participated in the DP World Tour Dubai Desert Classic held in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE), ignored Reed’s regards at the practice range, and Reed, furious, threw a wooden tee at McIlroy, reports came out. 메이저놀이터
Reed, the 2018 Masters Champion, is a representative player who left the US Professional Golf (PGA) Tour and left for LIV golf, and McIlroy is taking the lead in protecting the PGA Tour against LIV Golf.
In addition to Reed, several LIV golf transfer players such as Ian Poulter (England), Henrik Stenson (Sweden) and Adrian Otegi (Spain) will participate in the Dubai Desert Classic.
McIlroy has argued that the DP World Tour, like the PGA Tour, should be banned from participating in LIV golf transfer players.
When asked if the report was true at a press conference on the 26th (Korean time), McIlroy said, “It is true that I ignored Reed’s greetings.”
At first, he didn’t know Reed was coming because he was focused on practice, but when Reed came and said “Hi,” he said, “I really hate to see him.”
McIlroy expressed displeasure when Reed’s complaint was delivered to his home on Christmas Eve.
McIlroy also did not hide his feelings for Reed, saying, “If I were Reed, I wouldn’t come over to say hello or ask for a handshake.”
McIlroy said he had no idea Reed had teed it, but added, “If the position had changed, I would have teed it then.”
