Superstar golfer Rory McIlroy has absolutely no regrets about skipping the 2016 summer Olympics in Rio, Brazil.
“I don’t feel like I’ve let the game down at all. I didn’t get into golf to try to grow the game, I tried to get into golf to win championships and win major championships,” McIlroy told the media as he prepared for the the British Open. (SLIDESHOW: UFC
“I’m very happy with the decision I’ve made, I have no regrets about it. I’ll probably watch the Olympics, but I’m not sure golf will be one of the events I’ll watch,” he added.
Athletes have been very concerned about safety (or lack thereof) at the Olympics, and golfer Jordan Spieth was the latest golfer to drop out.
