Golf, not Rory McIlroy, has lost its popularity

So, Rory McIlroy now understands that the mandatory minimum for consideration as BBC Sports Personality of the Year for 2015 is to win all four of golf’s grand slams, set a course record at Augusta, and perhaps throw in some Nobel laureate-worthy charity work while he is at it.

Rory McIlroy takes break from golf to concentrate on court case with former management company Horizon

Rory McIlroy will be Europe’s big Ryder Cup star – and their big headache – against USA at Gleneagles
