Golf is one of those sports where you are at most times playing against the course and self-discipline is part of the game, there are not many sports that don’t have a referee for most part (OK in Professional game they have referees to answer any question about a ruling).
But for the vast majority of golfers around the world they play the game and it’s down to their own honesty regarding applying the rules.
So it was a bit of a shock when Rory Mcllroy walked off the golf course during his second round at the Honda Classic recently, leaving Ernie Els to finish the round on his own. It’s just not the thing to do, those involved in golf will tell you that.
It may be difficult for those who do not play the game to understand, but unless you are really ill and cannot swing the club, you just don’t do it, leaving your playing partner to play the course on their own, it’s is not on!
Rory Mcllroy, 23 from Northern Ireland and the world’s number one has since apologised for his behaviour saying that he had toothache; the fact is that he was 8 over for the round and on the 18th hole he put his second shot into the water, he was almost certain to miss the cut.
“It was a reactive decision” Mcllroy said “What I should have done is take my drop, chip it on, try to make five and move on and play my hardest on the back nine”.
Mcllroy should have known better, 18 months earlier during the 2011 PGA Championship he strained a tendon in his right wrist, yet he soldiered on to finish in 64th place even though his wrist was bandaged.
In an earlier blog I mentioned that Mcllroy had a new deal with Nike golf clubs and it is well known that he has yet to play well with them, It’s time for Mcllroy to ‘man up’ and show the world that he is a true champion in every sense of the word.
Stepping up and taking charge is sometimes hard to do, even more so when your company is drowning in debt, all thanks to completing a job but not being paid – happens all the more often now a days.
