Rory McIlroy, fresh off a victory that made him No. 1 in the world, had a brutally honest take on the unfolding PGA Tour vs. LIV Golf.
The interview said the dispute had turned into an "us vs. them" mentality. "The 'us versus them' thing has gotten out of hand," McIlroy said.
"If those two entities keep doubling back and forth, it's going to become irreparable. That's not good for anybody."
Do they know that what they're about to do is going to put them in danger of never being a part of it again?"
But knowing the consequences, I couldn't make that decision."
McIlroy is clearly fed up with going back and forth between the two off-course trips.
The two are in court cases against each other, and players from each tour have distanced themselves from their former friends.
McIlroy also took exception to Mickelson's recent comment that LIV Golf is on the rise and the PGA Tour is on the decline,
A force in the game that won't go away, that has players of this caliber moving professional golf around the world and a level of excitement.
