Rory McIlroy says he'll probably play BMW and attend football game
Rory McIlroy loves golf, for sure, but he's also pretty excited about the NFL season.
Rory McIlroy did not win this week. I repeat, Rory McIlroy did not win a golf tournament this week.
That's news because it seems like that's all the Ulsterman has done of late. McIlroy snapped his three-tournament winning streak by finishing T22 after a disappointing weekend finish of 70-70.
He said after his Sunday round, though, that he would press on throughout the playoffs.
"Looking forward to going to Boston, a course where I've had success on before and I've played well there," said McIlroy.
Hunter Mahan overtook McIlroy's No. 1 spot on the FedEx Cup points list so there's something else to play for. McIlroy will want to be No. 1 going into the Tour Championship.
But he mentioned that he might skip the BMW Championship at Cherry Hills in Colorado -- the tournament the week after the Deutsche Bank Championship.
"I was thinking about [skipping] it, but you know what? I feel fine. I feel fresh. I have no problem playing a lot of golf. I'll see where I stand next week. but I'm 90 percent going to be in Denver for sure."
Then he elaborated.
"One of the reasons why I want to go to Denver, as well, is the Broncos play the Colts on Sunday night. So I want to go to that, as well, first game of the season," he said. "I've heard a lot of great things about Cherry Hills. The ball obviously goes a mile there so I'm looking forward to that, like hitting 7-irons 220 [yards]."
McIlroy can probably do that in non-altitude-aided air, too.
