Rory McIlroy has chosen to step down from the PGA Tour Policy Board. Many believed that there was a certain conflict between the PGA Tour leader and McIlroy, however, this is not true. The Northern Irishman has set himself some other focuses and goals in life.

It seems that he is tired of everything and that his priority is to play the role of a golfer. Some golfers reacted to his decision, and Adam Scott is one of them. "I heard that he was ready to step down earlier in the year, but he stayed and saw the year out," -Adam Scott said, as quoted by golfmagic.com.

"Like his statement [said], I haven't talked to him about it since then, but he feels like he's got other priorities and he's giving a lot of time everywhere and he couldn't give the time to this any more. In one way that's being responsible rather than holding a board seat and not being engaged."


Rory McIlroy on his decision

Rory McIlroy has long been someone who stood up for the PGA Tour.

LIV Golf wanted to spoil the plans of the PGA Tour, but when you have people like Rory McIlroy on the PGA Tour Board, you can be happy. Nevertheless, over time it is logical that saturation and fatigue will occur, and it is necessary to leave the role to someone else.

That's what Rory did. "I just think I've got a lot going on in my life between my golf game, my family and my growing investment portfolio, my involvement in TGL, and I just felt like something had to give.
I just didn't feel like I could commit the time and the energy into doing that.

I don't mind being busy, but I just like being busy doing my own stuff.
Something had to give and there's guys that are on that board that are spending a lot more time and a lot more energy on it than I am. It's in good hands and I felt like it was the right time to step off."-
