President Trump joins NBC golf telecast, says sports will return 'fast'

'Not the way a leader should act' - McIlroy on Trump

Rory McIlroy takes swing at Trump: 'It’s not the way a leader should act'

Of course, Trump has no shame and after ducking the McIIroy query on Sunday night, he went on to promise golf fans they would be allowed back on the PGA Tour "sooner than you think" and vowed to rebuild "the greatest economy in the world". "Everyone is going to be watching what we're doing, so I think it's very important for us to do it all correctly".

Northern Ireland's Rory McIlroy teams up with Dustin Johnson to take on American duo Rickie Fowler and Matthew Wolff for a $3 million charity skins match, one of the rare live sports events available as golf adapts to the COVID-19 era.

"Golf was our common ground, nothing else. We don't want them to be having to wear masks".

"We want to have, when you have the Masters, we want to have big crowds". He is part of Trump's taskforce aimed at getting the American economy moving again, and was grateful for the President's support in enabling the tour to hopefully get back up and running on June 11. "I don't know if he'd want to play with me again after what I just said, but I wouldn't (play with him again)". "But as a health and medical officer and scientist, I have to say that now that you look at the country, we are not ready for that yet".

"Does DJ (Dustin Johnson) legitimately not know how to carry a golf bag anymore or something?" tweeted @14Thaddeus14, as images of the 2016 U.S. Open champ's clubs hanging haphazardly from his shoulder prompted good-natured ribbing on Twitter.

President Trump would certainly such as to see "big crowds" gathering to the Masters in November as he detailed his strategies to see sporting activity return to typical.

"So when you have those 10s of hundreds of individuals going to majors, and also going to normal golf competitions, we desire them to have that secure experience".

Trump hopes for COVID-19 vaccine by end of year, 'maybe before'
Government experts evaluated some 100 vaccine candidates and identified 14 they believe have the best chance of succeeding. The World Health Organization sounded a cautious note on Thursday.

Eager golf fans tuned in for one of the rare few live televised events, and were treated to a bit of mild trash talk early on, as McIlroy teased his 21-year-old opponent Wolff after sinking a putt for par four on the second hole.

What happened was the coronavirus pandemic that shuttered the sports world in March and caused the PGA Tour to cancel or postpone numerous events.

Despite McIlroy's denunciation of Trump in last week's McKellar Golf podcast, it remains a fact that the sport remains firmly wedded to America's commander in chief.

The four-time major victor has criticised Trump's handling of the coronavirus crisis and McIlroy has not been impressed with the President's leadership in recent weeks.

Mcllroy played with Trump in February 2017 at the Trump International golf course in West Palm Beach, Fla. It made them seem somewhat like the rest of those who might have played with this weekend at the serene warm New York Metro -region climate... minus the joint $155 million in career PGA Tour earnings the four've won.

"I would not be famous for my adventure drama", said McIlroy, smiling at the irony of the fact his leash drama draws the most criticism of his match.
