Rory McIlroy makes PGA Tour calls for a ‘more cut-throat’ era | Golf | Sport

Rory McIlroy has fronted up and demanded the PGA Tour to be more “cut-throat” and competitive.

After changes rocked the world of golf with the arrival of the LIV series, McIlroy stood up for both PGA and DP World Tours, but has acknowledged that golf now has to go about some wholesale changes.

McIlroy has softened his stance on Saudi-backed rivals LIV in recent months after Europe Ryder Cup team-mates Jon Rahm and Tyrrell Hatton were the latest top names to be tempted to sign up for the big-money venture.

Uncertaincy now reigns supreme, with golf stuck in limbo given the PGA Tour and LIV are yet to find an acceptable level or merger.

Competing in the Arnold Palmer Invitational this week, McIlroy reflected on where the PGA Tour can get better.

“No, I mean, I’m all for making it more cut-throat, more competitive,” the Northern Irishman told reporters.

“Probably won’t be very popular for saying this, but I’m all for less players and less TOUR cards, and the best of the best.”
