Rory McIlroy: Still friends with Graeme McDowell
Question of the Day
“I know what I said yesterday and I guess at the time I meant that but it is what it is and it’s water under the bridge and away we go,” McIlroy said. “I spoke to Graeme yesterday afternoon, and when we got back to the hotel we had a chat. Everything’s good. So there won’t be any quid pro quo at the wrong time the next few days or any stuff like that.
“I’m great friends with Graeme. He’s been like a big brother to me on tour,” McIlroy said. “I remember playing a practice rounds with him at the Dunhill Links back in 2007 when I got my card. He really showed me the ropes out here for a couple of years, and it’s great to have good friends on tour and he’s somebody I consider a very good friend.”
McIlroy already has had a rough year. He missed the cut in Abu Dhabi, lost in the opening round of the Match Play Championship and walked out of the second round at the Honda Classic out of frustration. His game is slowly turning around, though he has yet to win this year and has been replaced at No. 1 by Tiger Woods.
The 24-year-old McIlroy said he doesn’t consider his management issues to be a distraction with the next major only three weeks away.
“Not at all,” he said. “Once I get on that first tee, my mind is focused on shooting the best score possible and that has not changed and that will never change.”
