Faldo, Nicklaus Say McIlroy's Nike Deal, Off-Course Endeavors Having Negative Impact
Published July 8, 2013
IRISH EYES NOT SMILING: In Ireland, Gary Murphy wrote McIlroy is a "pale shadow of himself." His game is "completely out of synch and it's hard to see where his next win is coming from." Murphy: "I strongly believe McIlroy has taken his eye off the ball, not just slightly, but massively, on and off the course. I struggle to understand the rationale behind his proposed split with Horizon Sports Management." It also is "clear he has struggled with his clubs since signing" with Nike (IRISHMIRROR.ie, 7/4).
