    In stark contrast to Watson, McIlroy commented, “I’m not a fan of golf tournaments that the outcome is predicted so much by the weather…It’s not my sort of golf.”

     

    “These conditions I just don’t enjoy playing in really,” Rory said, “That’s the bottom line. I’d rather play when it’s 80 degrees and sunny and not much wind.” A candid comment certainly, but was it a prudent one? I would bet Watson would be a a little disappointed hearing that from the up and comer.
