Phil Mickelson and Rory McIlroy have not been on good terms for a long time. The Northern Irishman is not satisfied with the policy of LIV Golf, as well as the statements of individual golfers from LIV Golf. Such things infuriated Mickelson, who in a recent interview emphasized that no team from LIV Golf would like to have Rory McIlroy on the team.

“If LIV Golf was the last place to play golf on earth, I would retire,’’ McIlroy said, as quoted by theguardian.com! 

“That’s how I feel about it.’’

Rory McIlroy and PGA Tour

I’ve tried to step up for maybe the guys that didn’t have a voice early on, but I think with everything that’s transpired over the last few weeks the players are going to find themselves more and more at the table to try to get whatever that is they want out of it.

Again, as long as I get to play the golf that I’ve known over the last 15 years of my career, I’ll be happy.”


Phil Mickelson was brutally honest a few months ago and published a post on X. Mickelson believes that Rory would be a great addition to LIV Golf, but his behavior and statements are the reason why many would not tolerate him, Mickelson believes.

"As worn out as McIlroy was after the Masters and his need for an off season, LIV would be perfect for him.

Problem is I don’t think there’s a team that wants him on it because they’d have to deal with all his *"
