‘He kept yelling my wife’s name’: Rory McIlroy suggests limiting alcohol on course
US golf fans, a group known for expressing their feelings, are beginning to grate on Rory McIlroy. The world No13 was subjected to heckles during Saturday’s third round at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and wondered whether limiting alcohol sales could remedy the matter.
“There was one guy out there who kept yelling my wife’s name,” said McIlroy, who was two shots off the leader Henrik Stenson going into Sunday’s final round. “I was going to go over and have a chat with him. I don’t know, I think it’s gotten a little much, to be honest. I think that they need to limit alcohol sales on the course, or they need to do something because every week, it seems like guys are complaining about it more and more.”
