Feherty: Rory McIlroy Interview


Recommended Posts

Wasn't this week's episode of "Feherty" with Rory McIlroy fascinating? I found it shocking that Rory no longer plays golf just for fun anymore. I guess that's the downside of being a professional in an individual sport. I imagine that it is less of a case in team sports.

 

Any other thoughts on the interview?

Comes with the territory with the career he's had thus far. Contrast that with Fowler, who portrays that cool, laid back career life-style, does make time to play for fun with his buddies (as noticeable in his social media outlets). Not surprised with his answer.

 

I also liked him looking back at the 2014 PGA Championship and getting irked at Rickie & Phil fist bumping each other in the hole ahead of him. Lit a fire and got engaged. Lately, I havent seen that kind of look since then

Don't know how irked I would be at Rickie and Phil considering how the PGA screwed the pooch when they let Rory play up with Rickie and Phil on the last hole.

I thought it was interesting when Feherty asked him if he "wanted to announce anything" and Rory just laughed. Guess they knew what Rory was going to do today.

 

I think he did the interview in Ireland after the Irish Open, or at least Feherty was in Ireland then. That's when the first talk of the Zika virus came about, a BBC NI journalist asked him and there had been no mention of it before. Might be onto something there.

Really good interview. For all his success Rory seems to be a likeable, down to earth guy. I enjoy Feherty's interview style - he always manages to bring out the best in his subjects.

David Feherty is just boring.Tired of his problems with dealing with his "demons" in any interview he has ever done. Next week we get to see him spew about his fear of what runs in his family can"t wait

 

All you have to do is change the channel. :) I think he does some of the best interviews there are. He gets players to say stuff you don't hear anywhere else. Just my 2 cents.

Wasn't Rory babbling about how awesome being a Olympic champion would be ? And then he withdrew.

 

Yeah kinda ironic this will be the start of a mass

Exodus from the pros. Not only Zika but all the crime and other issues. Like having it in Haiti.

 

True. I can't imagine any golfer wanting to go there even for a chance at a gold medal.

Don't buy it...shorts = FUN

Rory: I'm having absolutely no fun here guys, I do not enjoy this!

Rors used to have passion. It seems to be lacking now. Comes with success I guess.

 

Same with Spieth. Now that he is wealthy and successful ... he seems to complain more about his surroundings (someone moved, cameraman, noise, etc.). Seems more edgy.

 

Maybe that is why it is fun watching the young, enthusiastic players that are still excited to be playing a game that pays a handsome salary.
