Rory McIlroy has expressed his dissatisfaction with LIV Golfers many times. The Northern Irishman believes he doesn’t deserve to play next year’s Ryder Cup. The backbone of the European team will be made up of a number of more experienced players, but there will also be more youngsters who will have a chance to prove themselves.
«I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a hundred times, I don’t think any of those guys should be on the Ryder Cup team. I think we needed a rebuild anyway. We did good with the same guys for a long time, but again, as I just said, everything comes to an end at some point.
I think Whistling Straits is a good kind of marking, I guess.» – he said, quoted by golfmonthly.com
Rory McIlroy on young players
Many hope that young talent will emerge who can compete for next year’s squad.
“I think the European team has a core of six or seven guys who I think we all know are going to be in that team, and then it’s up to some of the younger guys who maybe step up. You’ve got your core there with Ryder Cup experience and played in a few, so I think you’re looking at some of these younger guys over the next 12 months to step up and raise your hand for a potential selection. «
Rory McIlroy appears to be a man who believes young players deserve a chance. Perhaps the team also needs fresh blood and a few young players who can gain experience in the big competitions. “We have a core group of guys, but let’s build on that again, and instead of filling those three or four spots with older veterans, let’s bleed some rookies and bring them in and build toward the future. I think that’s important».
