Four-time major winner Rory McIlroy has voiced one of the harshest criticisms of PGA players who have joined the LIV Tour.
Many are saying Wednesday that some of them are “deceitful” for giving up their commitments to the tour.
This week McIlroy spoke to reporters in Travelers Championship in Cromwell on the matter. He said that he felt embarrassed that some players, including Brooks Koepka, turned around after promising their loyalty to the circuit.
“But am I surprised? Yes, because of what he said earlier,” McIlroy said.
“I think that’s why I’m surprised by many of these guys because they say one thing, and then they do another… I do not understand that, and I do not know if it is for legal reasons or if they cannot, I have no idea.
But it’s pretty deceitful of them to say one thing and do another.
On Tuesday, Koepka became the latest PGA player to join the LIV Tour, led by Greg Norman. Koepka will take part in the first LIV event in the U.S. next week in Portland.
Koepka ranked 19th in the world last week. At a conference, a reporter asked him about LIV Circuit. He criticized the reporter saying it was throwing a “black cloud” over the U.S. Open.
