Wednesday Golf Roundup: McIlroy and Woods Skip; Phil Sad; Nick Says Don’t Do It; More

Both Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods are skipping the HSBC Champions WGC event. Apparently, they are satisfied with their Chinese paychecks from their silly-season exhibition match last week. The Chinese government should have seen this coming.

Phil Mickelson, however, will be in attendance. Phil has apparently taken the Ryder Cup loss pretty hard:

I think the first two weeks following the Ryder Cup was a really tough low, one of the biggest lows of my career. It was one of the biggest disappointments that I’ve had to deal with.

That disappointment will last a lot longer than a month. I still feel disappointment from it. I still feel that over the next two years, we’ll still have the same disappointment from not winning this year’s Ryder Cup.

Peter Hanson is also playing. With a win, the Swede would supplant Rory McIlroy as the leading money winner on the European Tour this year.

Nick Faldo advises Rory McIlroy against changing club manufacturers.

  1. Sir Nick does have a point. Rory has been so successful with Titleist and a change wouldn’t guarantee the same type of results.

    On Rory’s side is he is super talented and if anyone is capable of making a successful switch it is him.
