Rory McIlroy Denies Report of $850M LIV Offer

Not even one week removed from playing in the Masters, Rory McIlroy once again spoke out against rumors linking the Irishman to the LIV Golf League.

In stating his plan to finish his career on the PGA Tour, McIlroy denied a published report from a London-based newspaper that he had been offered $850 million and an equity stake in LIV.

“I honestly don’t know how these things get started,” McIlroy told Golf Channel at the site of this week’s RBC Heritage. “I’ve never been offered a number from LIV, and I’ve never contemplated going to LIV. Again, I think I’ve made it clear over the past two years that I don’t think it’s something for me.”

“It doesn’t mean that I judge people who have went and played over there. I think one of the things that I have realized over the past two years is that people can make their own decisions for whatever they think is best for themselves, and who are we to judge them for that? But personally, for me, my future is here on the PGA Tour, and it’s never been any different.”

“It’s never even been a conversation for us,” McIlroy continued. “It’s unfortunate we have to deal with it, and this is the state our game is in. I’m obviously here and going to the PGA Tour event next week, and I’ll play the PGA Tour the rest of my career.”

Last June, while at the RBC Canadian Open, McIlroy said, “I still hate LIV. Like, I hate LIV. Like, I hope it goes away.”
