Rory McIlroy on Kevin Na's decision: I really don’t understand the decision

Kevin Na made a decision that provoked a large number of reactions. Namely, Na decided to resign from the PGA Tour. Aaron Wise was one of the first to comment on his decision.
“It’s a shame that guys feel they have to be on one side or the other,” Aaron Wise said, as quoted by “I feel like the tour has pushed that in a hard way, that you’re picking one side or the other, and I don’t know if Kevin was trying to make a point or taking a stance in what he believes and making a statement, but he obviously felt this is what he had to do”.

Na wants to perform at the LIV Golf International series “I am sad to share that I have chosen to resign from the PGA Tour,” said Na. “This has not been an easy decision and not one I take lightly. I hope the current policies change and I’ll be able to play on the PGA Tour again”.


Rory McIlroy is not surprised. “I guess maybe he’s protecting himself down the road. Maybe some legal issue. He obviously sees the LIV Golf tour is the place he’s going to play on going forward,” Rory McIlroy said.

"Look, I get it for Kevin. He’s never been … he’s qualified for the Open Championship a few times and not gone over. He likes to do what he likes to do, and he’s his own person. No, I’m not surprised”.

“I really don’t understand the decision at this point,” he said. Patrick Cantlay also commented. “I think life is a really long time, so it seems silly to me sometimes when people say that they want to resign from something or they pledge their fealty or whatever it is,” said Patrick Cantlay. “You don’t know what’s going to happen next week, let alone five or 10 years from now”.
