If it comes down to money they big boys will throw everything at him. He's proven he only cares about money. If it came down to performance, it would be the Snell.

How do you figure he only cares about money when he hasn't signed a new equipment deal?

KSigs, obviously

From the Inbox -- this one's interesting.  It appears Rory isn't happy with the ProV1 and is on the hunt for a new ball.  Who will it be? Srixon? Bridgestone? Kirkland? STROK?       Rory McIlroy p

With the limit of 5 allowed boxes per transaction he is going to have to drive to a lot of Costcos. [emoji13]    Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

Huh? Its always been that way, across all brands.

The X model in generally the lower spinning between the 2. Not the standard. This is the first year that they have flipped it.

The only thing that remains the same is that the regular V1 is softer.

 

I was not aware of this change for this season. And don't like it.

Oh really? Ask yourself what has he done for golf and what has he done for himself? He had the chance time and time again to push golf and just doesn't. He is no Palmer or Nicklaus if you ask me. He looks for the pay.

That doesn't make a ton of sense since he hasn't signed an equipment contract with anyone - he has his Nike deal, but hasn't signed anything with anyone, and according to reports, doesn't plan on signing any equipment deals until 2018 at the earliest.

 

Report: Rory McIlroy using Callaway clubs, Titleist ball to start 2017 The No. 2 player in the world is making an equipment change to kick off the new year

Tiger Woods' equipment free agency might be more important financially, but Rory McIlroy's is more interesting to me. The No. 2 golfer on the planet said last fall that he would be testing out a variety of clubs over the next few months (and maybe years). It seems as if he has settled on something.

According to No Laying Up, McIlroy will start the 2017 European Tour season with Callaway irons and driver. He will play the Titleist ProV1x ball, Titleist wedges and tinker with an Odyssey putter.

The new Callaway clubs will include the Callaway GBB Epic Sub Zero driver and Callaway Custom Apex MB irons.

There is no plan to sign a deal with Callaway (or any other company) in 2017, according to No Laying Up. McIlroy, as you might remember, played TaylorMade woods and driver in China in November at the HSBC Champions. He was still using his Nike irons then.

Now it seems as if he has moved completely away from Nike, though, as he won't have the golf ball or irons in his bag at the BMW South African Open in two weeks. This will be intriguing to follow throughout the year. Will McIlroy stick with Callaway for all 12 months? Will he keep the TaylorMade woods? Will he switch back to Nike wedges at some point?

It make sense for McIlroy to mix and match equipment this season before he signs a new equipment deal at some point in 2018 or beyond. Either way, a locked-in McIlroy with all the clubs he wants for a loaded-up 2017 is a hell of a thought. That No. 1 ranking in the world has never looked more vulnerable.

Sorry. I call it as I see it. He doesn't respect the sport. I don't deny his talent. The guy could push golf to new heights and doesn't. He's completely selfish and all about himself. The fact that he hasn't signed with anybody yet means nothing because of the Nike deal. I'm sure he's waiting for some company to bend over. Should happen soon. Again, talent wise he's one of the best but in terms of credibility he's no Day, Speith, Fowler or anyone else

His job isn't to push golf. His job is to win and provide for his family. Not to push golf. Any of the top guys pushing golf isn't going to make people from my generation want to play it more.

You have GOT to be kidding me. You are mad at the guy for taking a pay day???

Do you think one single pro wouldn't have taken the deal Rory was offered? If so, you need to put the booze down.

 

Literally the only thing you could be referring to was his comments on Olympics last year which he himself said he regretted later on.

 

The dude is down to earth, self aware and goes out his way to be nice to people. I'm sorry he doesn't live up to your high standards :D

 

One more time... Very poorly informed take.

I'd bet he winds up gaming the Chromesoft X. He has so much Callaway in the bag already it's only a matter of time until the equipment deal lands.

Ahhhh the beauty of having an unpopular opinion.

 

I believe that as a person with "celebrity-like" status, it IS his/er responsibility to help better his/her sport or profession. He would not be playing had it not been for the guys like Palmer and Nicklaus, heck even Tiger, with all his shortcomings made the sport better. I have my opinion on him and I've always called it as I see it. Sure, maybe in time I'll change but as of right now I am unimpressed. But it's cool, happy to see the donations and other links Barb posted. That's definitely something I was obviously not aware of. I was mainly angry with the Olympic comments.

Lots of opinions on Rory's decision not to participate in the Olympics. I thought this piece in Golf Digest was spot on, although as it turned out the actual competition was a good but more compelling than the author predicted...

And interesting to read Jack's take on it...

Rickie Fowler got the kids interested again. Just by wearing a flat brim hats and flashy shirts. Currently the only professional golfer I can think of that has had a part in "Growing" the sport and even that has died off some.

With all due respect Theoo I am letting this go. At my age, getting into internet spats or trying to prove a point has little appeal to me. What I stated was my opinion and possibly in time it will change. I never claimed my opinion was the be all end all nor did I claim any of your opinions were not. I was under the impression here that we could give our opinion so I did. I respect your opinion and you as well as everybody else are entitled to it as am me.  Just let it go...
