The four-time major winner was followed by a persistent fan Saturday at the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill in Orlando who wouldn’t stop chiding him about his wife.
“There was one guy out there who kept yelling my wife’s name,” McIlroy, told ESPN. “I was going to go over and have a chat with him. I don’t know, I think it’s gotten a little much, to be honest. I think that they need to limit alcohol sales on the course, or they need to do something because every week, it seems like guys are complaining about it more and more.”
It’s not the first time McIlroy has been irked with fans. In February, he was frustrated with the crowds that have showed up to watch the reemergence of Tiger Woods as a competitive golfer.
“It might always have been like this, like the whole Tiger mania and these dudes, but I swear, playing in front of all that, he gives up half a shot a day on the field,” McIlroy said. … “But it’s tiring. I need a couple Advil. I’ve got a headache after all that.”
In honor of Rory getting all hot and bothered about a fan heckling him over his wife, we’ve decided to put together a nice little gallery.
Rory should be proud they’re heckling him about his wife, it must mean he’s married well. Rory needs to block out the hecklers, no matter what. He can’t give in, now all the hecklers know exactly what ticks him off.
