- After the criticism he received, Rory McIlroy said he would “think twice” before accepting an invitation to play golf with President Trump a second time.

McIlroy indicated he didn’t agree with some of things that Trump has said, and was more interested in seeing the scene that accompanies playing golf with a president than his opinion on issues.

He said President Trump was more interested in discussing the grass put on the greens than politics.

McIlroy discussed playing with President Trump in a news conference Tuesday ahead of the Masters Tournament.

The two played together at Trump International in Florida in February.

“I felt I would have been making more of a statement if I had of turned it down,” he said. “It’s not a tough place to be put in, but it was a round of golf and nothing more.”

McIlroy is a four-time major winner who only needs a green jacket to complete the Career Grand Slam.
