Rory McIlroy, Brooks Koepka
Rory McIlroy upset with Brooks Koepka about not being straight forward on his intentions of leaving for the LIV Golf Series.

It really was no surprise that Brooks Koepka dumped the PGA Tour and joined the LIV Golf Series. I could have called that a month ago when Dustin Johnson decided to join LIV.

Rory is pissed with former PGA Tour players lying about their position on LIV. If they want to leave, leave, don’t beat around the bush on what you want to do.

“Am I surprised? Yes, because of what he said previously,” McIlroy said, when asked about Koepka. “I think that’s why I’m surprised at a lot of these guys because they say one thing and then they do another, and I don’t understand that and I don’t know if that’s for legal reasons or if they can’t — I have no idea. But it’s pretty duplicitous on their part to say one thing and then do another thing.”
