Rory McIlroy misses the competition more than the golf
Rory McIlroy is staying indoors and at home like so many of us during the coronavirus pandemic. But things haven’t been easy for the world No. 1 golfer.
Though McIlroy is able to stay in shape thanks to a home gym, what he really misses is the competition. He said in an interview with Sky Sports’ Jamie Redknapp on Instagram that he misses that even more than the golf.
“I love golf and it has given me a lot of really great things but I think I love the competition more. If there’s no competition, then there’s nothing to look forward to.
“Right now, I am just enjoying spending some time at home, getting after it in the gym, and spending time by the pool or playing tennis,” McIlroy said, via The Sun.
McIlroy was competing in the Players Championship before PGA Tour events were canceled through May 21. Both the Masters and PGA Championship have been postponed.
McIlroy says he wants to know that he’s working towards something specific when he begins preparing, so maybe his juices won’t get going until he learns about the next event on his calendar.
