There was no holding back when Rory McIlroy was asked his opinion about the recent vote at Muirfield.
When asked for his views about Muirfield, McIlroy unleashed his fury. This is what we all like about him. He speaks his mind.
He said: “In this day and age, where you’ve got women that are like the leaders of certain industries and women that are heads of state and not to be able to join a golf course?”
Of course, we here at Golfhacker agree with him on this one. Yet, McIlroy wasn’t finished there. He continued to say that: “I still think that it got to the stage, this stage, is horrendous, And yeah, I mean, we’ll go back and we’ll play the Open Championship, because they will let women members in, but every time I go to Muirfield now I won’t have a great taste in my mouth.”
“I mean, I just don’t, I don’t get it. So, anyway, look, we’ll go back there for the Open Championship at some point, and I won’t be having many cups of tea with the members afterwards.”
