McIlroy turns down spot in Saudi tournament

  • Rory Mc Ilroy does not want to play in Saudi Arabia next month

The Saudi International will be played from January 30 at Royal Greens Golf & Country Club.

Of course McIlroy would have been a huge draw but, if the appearance fee offers are anything to go by, he's not quite on Woods' level of attraction yet.

Friday's incident was not the first time Reed has found himself in the middle of a cheating controversy, either - something that Rory McIlroy, the current No. 2 ranked golfer in the world and reigning FedExCup champion, thinks makes Reed even more of a target.

Fifteen-time major victor Tiger Woods revealed last week that he had turned down an invitation to play in the second edition of the Saudi International.

"It's nearly like, a lot of people within the game, it's nearly like a hobby to sort of kick him when he's down", McIlroy said Monday on "Morning Drive".

Amnesty International describes the Saudi regime's human rights records as "heinous" but the country has been attempting to lure big sporting events to the kingdom, notably last Saturday's world heavyweight boxing title fight between Anthony Joshua and Andy Ruiz Jr in Riyadh.

"I think the live shot isn't as incriminating as the slow-mo", McIlroy said, via the Golf Channel.

"It's just not something that would excite me", the Northern Irishman said, echoing comments from Tiger Woods who last week confirmed he had also rejected an approach to play in the event.

"You could say that about so many countries, not just Saudi Arabia, but a lot of countries that we play in that there's a reason not to go, but for me, I just don't want to go".

The four-time major victor conceded that he had watched Saturday's Joshua-Ruiz bout on television, but added that his tournament appearances in the early part of 2020 will be confined to PGA Tour events.
