McIlroy compares his win to Tiger at Pebble, discusses future plans with PGA
Rory McIlroy joined the show to talk about his U.S. Open victory and the aftermath.
Dan asked McIlroy to compare his Masters meltdown to what happened at Congressional.
“It was different,” McIlroy said. “At Augusta it was a new experience. I didn’t know what way to approach it. … There was a big difference in mindset and attitude as well.”
Dan then asked how he compared his U.S. Open win or what Tiger did at Pebble Beach in 2000.
“I don’t think it’s as impressive,” McIlroy said. “Tiger was the only person under par that week. The golf course was scoreable. What Tiger did at PEbble to win by 15 shots, it was ridiculous.”
McIlroy also commented on play in America. He said he won’t join the PGA for four or five years. He likes where his schedule is now, and doesn’t want to change it.
McIlroy talked about how he’ll change after the U.S. Open. “I feel like I’ll stay the same person,” McIlroy said. “I’ve surrounded myself with enough good people to help me keep my feet on the ground.”
In breaking news, McIlroy said he doesn’t like Guinness. Heineken is his beer of choice.
