Rory Mcilroy- why he can't close out a golf tournament
In August of 2017 at the Open Championship at Royal Birkdale Mcilroy fired his caddie JP Fitzgerald.
Fitzgerald's replacement was Harry Diamond, Rory's best friend who had no professional caddie experience at all. Fitzgerald on the other hand, had caddied for Darren Clarke, Paul Mcginley and Ernie Els.
Since Diamond took over, Mcilroy was in the last group in these 7 tournaments:
2018 Tour Championship
2019 Sentry Tournament of Champions
2019 Arnold Palmer Invitational
and he was unable to close the deal.
I'm wondering if Mcilroy would have had a caddie with tour experience, a caddie who knew how to handle the pressure being in contention on Sunday, he might have won at least one of those six tournaments.
I'm wondering if Mcilroy is thinking about that too.
It's OK to tell people how good you are, but when your're really good, they'll tell you.
