Four-time Major winning Rory McIlroy has saved himself $20,000 with a simple apology on live TV
McIlroy hit the headlines in March when he hurled his 3-iron into a lake at Doral during the WGC-Cadillac Championship in suburban Miami.
The PGA Tour will never reveal how much players are fined for such incidents, but McIlroy confirmed: “The fine was reduced from $25,000 to $5,000 because I said I was sorry on the TV interview afterwards.”

Ireland’s rookie professional Paul Dunne was heading straight to the British Masters where he will look to draw upon his winning Woburn ways.
Some three months ago Dunne finished the leading Open Championship qualifier posting rounds of 70 and a sizzling 65 to win by three shots and thus earn a place in the 144th Open where he would go onto to share the lead with a round to play.

Paul Dunne is hoping history can repeat itself with the rookie pro looking to follow in the same footsteps of Rory McIlroy and secure his European Tour card at this week’s Alfred Dunhill Links Championship.
Eight years ago a then 18–year old McIlroy stood at the back of 18th green on the Old Course watching Scotland’s Paul Lawrie putt for birdie on the final day of the Dunhill-sponsored event.
“If Lawrie misses this putt that’s my Tour card,” said McIlroy at the time.
Lawrie missed the putt and McIlroy’s third place finish, and also in a second tournament as a pro, ...
If European Tour CEO Keith Pelley needed to quickly find his feet in a new role he did in delicate dealings with double European No. 1 Rory McIlroy and his management team.
The 51-year old Canadian-born Pelley took over the reins of the European Tour in April from Irish-born George O’Grady.
