JACK NICKLAUS TO RORY McILROY: “HOW THE HELL CAN YOU SHOOT 63 AND THEN 78?”

Posted on: June 13, 2014

Twenty-five year old Rory McIlroy, one of the world’s top professional golfers, recently sat down with golf legend Jack Nicklaus during which the subject of McIlroy’s first and second rounds at Nicklaus’ recent Memorial Tournament came up. Nicklaus asked him: “How the hell can you shoot 63 (first round) and then 78 (second round)?” I think I might have one possible answer to that question and you might agree with me if you subscribe to the theory: What takes place away from the golf course affects what takes place on the golf course.

McIlroy recently broke off his engagement to Danish tennis pro Caroline Wozniacki and said at the time: “The problem is mine…I wasn’t ready for all that marriage entails.” But there could be some lingering effects from that decision. What if (and I’m only speculating) Caroline didn’t want the relationship to end and is still pursuing the possibility they will get back together. And one of the ways she stays in contact with him is through his cell phone. As you may be aware, some of the PGA Tournaments allow participants to take and make calls on their cell phones during competition providing the calls are personal and not performance related. So let’s assume (and this is strictly assumption) that just before teeing off the second round he receives an unwanted call from Caroline. They get into a brief spat and the results show up on the leader board. But the weirdest thing of all is why do they even allow cell phones (or i-phones) to be used during competition and how can they police usage?
