The PGA Tour does not discuss the disciplinary action they take with their players. So it came as quite a surprise when Rory mentioned in a recent story that because he had apologized during an interview after the Cadillac Championship, for throwing his club, the PGA Tour had reduced the fine by $20,000! Some guys get all the luck!
Remember back in March at the WGC-Cadillac Championship when Rory McIlroy threw his club into the water after his approach shot at the par-5 fifth hole found the hazard? Well, in a recent interview with ESPN, McIlroy revealed that the apology he gave following his round ended up saving him $20,000.
“The fine was reduced from $25,000 to $5,000 because I said I was sorry in the TV interview afterward,” McIlroy was quoted saying.
Here’s the video of the club toss:
