Brooks Koepka decided to perform at LIV Golf to the surprise of the entire golf public. Reactions to his decision immediately followed, and one of the first to react was Rory McIlroy, especially since Koepka denied a few weeks ago that he would be competing in LIV Golf.
Rory McIlroy is just as surprised as everyone else with Koepka's decision. "Am I surprised? Yes, because of what he said previously. "I think that's why I'm surprised at a lot of these guys because they say one thing and then they do another and I don't understand.
"I don't know if that's for legal reasons or if they can't - I have no idea - but it's pretty duplicitous on their part to say one thing and then do another thing, in public and in private." - McIlroy said, as quoted by skysports.
Brooks Koepka reacted
Brooks Koepka confirmed that he had heard Rory McIlroy's comment. However, Koepka believes that everyone has the right to their opinion, and it seems that such comments do not burden him. Koepka believes that everyone has the right to change their minds.
There is a lot of talk about the motives of his decisions, but most believe that money is the main motive not only for him but also for everyone else who will perform at LIV Golf. "Look, I got respect for Rory as a player.
He's good. He's phenomenal. "I'll be honest with you. I didn't see it [the "duplicitous" comment]. I didn't hear about it until basically like a day ago. "So, look, he's entitled to his opinion.
He can think whatever he wants. He's going to do what's best for him and his family, I'm going to do what's best for me and my family and can't hate on anybody for that, and like I said, opinions change."
