Rory "not patriotic"??

Rory not looking forward to Olympics

 

Man, it seems as if Rory is in a real bad spot mentally with his game.....his new coaching staff is NOT working out as planned.....he still cannot putt and is spraying his driver all over the course and his wedge game, once his go to shot, has disappeared.  7 years without a major???

 

now he says he is not looking forward to the Olympics and he is not patriotic.....the once prodigal son of Ireland is struggling in all aspect of golf......

He has won 5 times since 2019 including a Players, Tour championship and a 2021 win at Wells Fargo ranked 15 in the world, that's average? Life happens wife, kids other interests....When he is in Rickies boat then we can use average

Im not comparing him to Rickie Fowler.....lol......eveyone knows he is average at best......im comparing Rory to Rory...... sure he won on the Euro tour (big deal? not so much) and his players win was great.....but for Rory, he has really regressed. He is still my favorite player but he is throwing clubs again, making silly comments and spraying the ball all over gods creation...

Average Player is Average Rory? Got it, Winning 5 times in 2 years is a high standard of average

you really think he has been good?

When you look on paper without knowing the player 5 wins in two years a tour championship, a players you think that is not good? then Justin Thomas is average player, Xander is below average player, Brooks has won 3 times in the last two years one being a major is that average or below average player, Cantlay has won 3 times in two years below average player by your standards there are a handful of above average players

Who knows what he exactly meant by "patriotic", a few above seem to have it figured out - it's complicated.

 

As for the golf, like a lot of other great young players . . . he's not Tiger.  His talent is unreal and he'll figure things out and likely have more success moving forward than 90% of those who have ever played the Tour.

His players win was great, BUT?? A win on the Euro Tour is not a big deal? This is a hot take 😅

It's called managing expectations ... why put all that pressure on yourself of telling the world "this is the biggest thing in the world to me - I HAVE to win a medal!" That's just setting yourself up for failure.

 

No matter what your internal expectations are, lowball it. Eh, no big deal. Tell yourself life goes on, win or lose. The sun comes up tomorrow no matter what. Otherwise, you're just putting extra weight on your shoulders.

First, is his level of patriotism something that should be judged? He's from Northern Ireland. Patriotism has a different meaning and context in Northern Ireland than patriotism has in the United States.  The Troubles still resonate. Reportedly, one of his family members was murdered during that time period. 

The other part of this thread focuses on him being average. He's only 32 years old but he's already been a pro going on 14 years. There are ebbs and flows in every career. He's probably got a few more victories in him including one or two majors. Give him a break. He's pretty darn good. 

So you didn't read the article? Nobody is judging his patriotism ... he's the one that said he's not patriotic.

He needs to stop all this zen crap , quit fighting his natural shape , and ditch that dang spider putter.  And just go out pissed off and play.  He’s looks like a guy who doesn’t know how to be angry.  Like whne he’s mad he says “ fiddlesticks “ or “ sassafras “.    Until he craves the taste of blood it won’t change.  It’s all bandaids covering mortal wounds.  His old caddie was correct. “ you’re effing Rory mcclroy “ all else is just excuses.  He fired the guy for telling the truth , and placing the blame where it belongs.   


Can’t wait to whip out a “fiddlesticks” and a “sassafras” during men’s league Wednesday after I snap hook a drive and blade a bunker shot.

Simple. Direct. Classy. Embracing the Olympic Ideal. Love it.

IMO Rory needs to step away from reading the self help books, they have just cluttered his golfing mind, they might have done wonders for his personal life and self awareness, but if you listen to his pressers, he is always talking like someone who has just been thru a therapy session with a shrink...the over analyzing over his golf swing and the mechanics and what he is working on has got him so tied up...maybe he needs to see a sports psychologist to free him up from all the other psycho babble, because when he plays pure golf he come real close to being unbeatable

Lol. Right !  This is why I love Rahm or JT or even Reed.  A guy who won’t cuss himself out isn’t trying hard enough.  I’ll admit.  The sassafras part I stole from someone. But I can’t remember who it was.  A comedian.  Maybe Carlin ? Who knows.  
 

 

 

wanted to add - im pro Rory.  Im a fan.  So don’t take my opinion as bias hate.  It’s actually me wanting to see him play mad and determined.  His A + isn’t beatable by anyone save possibly DJ or Brooks. And I don’t know if Brooks’ A + survived the surgeries.

There are a lot of people that like Rory, but I am not one of them.  My dislike began years back when Tiger influenced him to dump his manager to switch to Tiger's mgt company, and it resulted in Rory's breaking an implied contract and big court battle.  Never followed it to see how it settled but haven't bothered with Rory since. 

 

So, what he said in that interview and another interview is sad but not surprising.  Rory is all about Rory, and I don't think there's much to him.

he shouldn't be playing in them ... the current state of 'things' in japan/the rest of the world makes going over there nothing but a headache for someone who already has a valid reason for not wanting to represent a country ... but, he's a good dude and is indeed doing the right thing ... and his golf game sucks at the moment, which is not the best of reasons to avoid competition, but certainly adds another reason here ...

Rory is from NI so is British, but according to the qualifying rules for an Irish passport, he is also Irish. That's the problem - if he plays for GBR he gets flak from IRL and vice versa. It's a no-win situation so best to be a-political and ignore the Olympics. Who wants to go to a place that's in lockdown anyway?


 

Fair point. He was asked if going during covid is a test of his patriotism. And, as you point out, it’s not as straight forward a question for him as for some. 
 

Patriotism could open up a whole can of worms that could even digress into religion.

 

He comes across like he’d rather not even go,

 

"I am doing it because I think it is the right thing to do.”

 

Kinda like getting your teeth cleaned ; )
