Rory McIlroy: I don't think any of those guys should be on the Ryder Cup team

Rory McIlroy has expressed his displeasure with LIV Golfers many times. The Northern Irishman believes that they do not deserve to play next year in the Ryder Cup. The skeleton of the European team will consist of several more experienced players, but there will also be younger ones who will have the opportunity to prove themselves.

"I have said it once, I've said it a hundred times, I don't think any of those guys should be on the Ryder Cup team. I think we were in need of a rebuild, anyway. We did well with the same guys for a very long time but again as I just said, everything comes to an end at some point.

I think Whistling Straits is a good sort of demarcation, I guess." - he said, as quoted by golfmonthly.com

Rory McIlroy on young players

Many hope that young talents will appear who can compete for the next year's squad.

“I think the European Team has a core of six or seven guys that I think we all know are pretty much going to be on that team, and then it's up to some of the younger guys to maybe step up. You've got your core there with experience in the Ryder Cup and played in a few, so I think you're looking for some of these younger guys over the next 12 months to step up and put their hand up for a possible pick."

Rory McIlroy seems to be a man who believes that young players deserve a chance. Maybe the team also needs fresh blood and a few young players who can gain experience in big competitions. “We have got a core group of guys but let's build on that again, and instead of filling those three or four spots with older veterans, let's blood some rookies and let's get them in and build towards the future. I think that's important”.
