"It was better. I was really happy about my iron play coming in here, felt like I really found something last week. I didn't get a chance to show it because I wasn't finding the fairway very much, but today, just having some more opportunities to hit good iron shots and give myself birdie chances, I was able to show it a bit and it was nice.
I feel like I've birdied a lot of the hard holes this week which is nice confidence, but knowing that even if you don't birdie a par-5 or you don't take advantage of the easier holes, that you're hitting it good enough that you can still make birdies on the tougher holes, I guess.
So that probably makes it a touch easier that I am here and I'm somewhere that I am very comfortable," said Roy McIlroy after a second-round 66 at the Wells Fargo Championship. He joked about needing to plug the coordinates of Quail Hollow Club into his GPS for the weekend.
Rory McIlroy doesn't approve the new Premier Golf League
"I am definitely against it and this story is a perfect reminder of what happened in the world of football. This is just an economic project that aims to make the players as much money as possible.
If there is someone who has this goal, they can choose this path easily," said Northern Irishman Rory McIlroy thus reiterates his no to the Premier Golf League. "I think this project is really interesting and certainly deserves to be evaluated carefully"
This is the position of Phil Mickelson who in the past had already winked at the Premier Golf League which aims to take the limelight from 2022. The opinion of Justin Thomas and Rory McIlroy is diametrically opposed. "I don't know how this story will end - the statements of Thomas, world number 2 - but my intention is to go back to being the best player, win as many majors as possible and do historic things on the PGA Tour"
These are the positions of some stars about nascent Premier Golf League (PGL) which, through a Saudi fund, would be ready to put 1 billion dollars to convince many big names to leave the traditional circuits to embark on a new adventure.
The Premier Golf League (PGL), with the support of a Saudi fund, returns to undermine the safety of the most important men's green circuits. Immediate reaction of the PGA Tour which, as has already happened in football with FIFA and Uefa, imposes a hard line.
"Anyone who decides to enter this circuit will be suspended immediately and will risk the definitive expulsion from the top American tour." This is the position expressed by Jay Monahan, commissioner of the PGA Tour.
The Premier Golf League would have put $ 1 billion on the table to convince 40-50 players to embark on a new adventure. Which covers 18 events around the world with mind-boggling bags. The goal is to take the stage as early as 2022.
