Irish Open key to Pelley's strategy but PGA Irish Region in dark over Qualifier talks
Rory McIlroy and the European Tour have massive plans for the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open but there’s doubt about Lough Erne Resort’s planned hosting in 2017 and utter confusion between the tour and the Irish Region of the PGA over a possible qualifying event.
Tour make exception for McIlroy and his "potentially serious and significant injury"
Rory McIlroy's assertion that he would only come back to tournament play when he was "100% healthy and 100% competitive" was clearly premature. Given that the European Tour's new Chief Executive Keith Pelley is allowing him compete for the Race to Dubai's grand prize despite it becoming clear in recent weeks that he will fail to meet the 13 event minimum, he is plainly far from 100 percent healthy.
