McIlroy Tired Of Trying To Please Everyone, Doubles Down On Comments

Rory McIlroy has had enough. After an all-encompassing press conference earlier this week that made headlines with nearly every answer, McIlroy said Thursday after a first-round 69 that he was done trying to be a people pleaser.

Here’s the full quote, via

“Look,” McIlroy said, “it’s my opinion. I think my opinion is shared by a few people, but some people may think it’s wrong, and that’s fine. I’ve spent seven years trying to please everyone, and I figured out that I can’t really do that, so I may as well be true to myself.”

He also went on to clarify some other statements he made.

Good for him. An honest Rory is the best Rory.
