Rory "not patriotic"??

Can't comment on Rory's life or his decisions, as I have never met the man. As for the whole Olympics thing, I personally don't have a warm and fuzzy feeling for it and most likely won't watch the golf portion.

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.

 

 

I'm with you.   Rory's camp is me, myself and I.

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.

It's not perfect because he moves his head up and down a good bit.  But it's pretty damn good.

the golf swing with a driver or a long iron is really good ... or has been ... 

 

the other swings aren't currently worth anything ... and have never been all that consistent ...

I still think that representing your country as an athlete in the Olympics has to be one of the greatest honors. The athletes should be more appreciative of the opportunity they are given. If they are not appreciative of the opportunity, they should bow out and give the spot to another athlete. Perhaps, the Olympics should only have amateurs and no pros involved and that might help solve this issue. 

Ya, except when you're from a place that doesn't embrace that and half of them don't like you?

Rory seems really whiny, like he’s almost always about to complain about something. 
 

It doesn’t seem like he really enjoys playing Tour golf anymore, so maybe he should take a break.

 

If he decides he wants to spend the rest of his days doing something else, he should. Maybe Anthony Kim has room in his poker game, jk.

The last year has made it abundantly clear that my fellow Americans in general hold a very narrow world view.  As a result, the hammering of Rory Mcllroy for not being patriotic, while not having any idea what it means to be from where he is from, is not at all surprising.

Agree 100%. I believe Rory belongs to the catholic minority of Northern Ireland and one of his extended family members has been murdered in the past during the violent clashes between protestants and catholics - which have been ongoing for more or less frequently for generations. In his junior years Rory has been competing in the same events and teams with Irish, which has just been the practicality of golf in that region. He probably deep down feels more connection to Ireland than UK, but due to political sensitivity, sad family history, and his current super star status, has decided to keep his mouth shut and take a neutral stance on the issue. The patriotic nature and flag waving of the Olympics is making it only worse for him. 

 

There is a saying that if you bow down to one direction, you will be showing your a## to the other, and this is exactly the case with Rory.

It’s your own view of Americans which is “narrow” and speaks to you possibly not having a broad interaction with Americans across geographies and demographics. 
 

The US has, by far, the most immigrants and this includes both those who emigrated here as well as multigenerational great great, great, grand, and sons and daughters of immigrants. 
 

This results is an enormous wealth of culture and direct influence of views from being part of international families and communities. 
 

If you gain more exposure, you may not generalize about Americans…in general ; )

clearly he did before trying the X7 shafts

 

his swing speed not as high as  most here!

we actually know Rory's swing speed, but on wrx everyone flies the driver 340 has a small factor of 1.59 and hits the lob wedge 144.
