The PGA Tour-PIF deal is causing excitement among many. Although the deadline for the conclusion of negotiations is December 31, it seems that things could take much longer. Rory McIlroy did not want to reveal more details regarding the potential solution and the final agreement in the interview with the media.

However, the Northern Irishman emphasized that everything will be known to the media when things are clear. "I think if you were in the middle of it, you would see that there's a path forward. It's just that no one on the outside has any details.

Loose lips sink ships, so we are trying to keep it tight and within walls. I'm sure when there's news to tell, it will be told."- Rory McIlroy said.

Rory McIlroy hopes that everything will be completed soon.

He emphasized how important it is that things be completed as soon as possible. However, this does not guarantee that the deal will actually happen. The situation is a bit strange, it must be admitted, but there is no shortage of optimism on both sides.

"I think getting something done sooner rather than later is a good thing. Because you know, even if we get a deal done, it doesn't mean that it's actually going to happen. That's up to the United States government at that point, and whether the Department of Justice think that it's the right thing to do or whether anti-competitive or whatever." The Northern Irishman believes that even by making an agreement, no one can predict the future or find out whether things will really remain as they are.

"Even if a deal does get done, it's not a sure thing. So yeah, we are just going to have to wait and see. But in my opinion, the faster something gets done, the better." Source: Golfmonthly
