Rory McIlroy has withdrawn the newly proposed Premier Golf League over schedule concerns
Chances of success, the PGL should have like & # 39; the world's number one McIlroy and Tiger Woods among its players.
However, apart from excluding himself, McIlroy also believes that Woods would not be interested in playing so many events.
& # 39; The more I have thought about it, the more I don't like it, & # 39; McIlroy told reporters in a press conference prior to the WGC-Mexico championship.
& # 39; The only thing I appreciate in my position as a professional golfer is the fact that I have autonomy and freedom over everything I do.
& # 39; This (week) is a perfect example. Some boys made the choice this week not to come to Mexico. If you play in this other golf competition, you don't have that choice.
& # 39; I recently read something that said that if you take the money, they can tell you what to do, so if you don't take the money, they can't tell you what to do.
& # 39; I think that's my thing – I've never been told what to do and I like that autonomy and freedom about my career and I think I should give up by playing in this other competition. I'm ahead of me. & # 39;
McIlroy acknowledges that he may have to change his attitude if he is the only player against the competition, but believes that the opinion is currently & # 39; very divided & # 39; is between the game's star names.
& # 39; My position is that I am against it until a day can come when I cannot be against it, & # 39; added the four-fold big winner. "If everyone else goes, I may not have a choice, but at the moment I don't like what they represent.
& # 39; Tiger & # 39; s 44, he has two young children. He said openly last week that he wants to play 12 times a year, this competition proposes 18, so he won't do it. & # 39;
McIlroy also believes that the American star Tiger Wooods will choose the 18-event competition
The concept of an & # 39 World Golf Tour & # 39; has existed for more than 20 years, with former world number one Greg Norman unveiling his plans in 1994, but that did not get a grip.
& # 39; I would like to be on the right side of history with this, just a bit like Arnold (Palmer) was with the entire Greg Norman thing in the 90s, & # 39 McIlroy added.
& # 39; Money is cheap, money is the easy part. It should not be the driving factor. For some people it is and we are professional golfers and we are playing golf here to earn a living, but in the end I appreciate my freedom and my autonomy over everything else.
I appreciate many other things about money and that is my position on this. & # 39;
