Arnold Palmer: Rory McIlroy better not skip my tournament!
By mustang6560 on 11/1/12
Rory McIlroy, along with Tiger Woods, was criticized for skipping the HSBC Champions this week.
Despite an unhappy sponsor, neither Rory nor Tiger will face any real consequences for their decision to bypass Mission Hills. But Rory better be careful before he decides to skip any more tournaments — like the Arnold Palmer Invitational — or he may face a painful consequence.
World No. 1 Rory McIlroy has never played the Arnold Palmer Invitational.Oh, Arnie. You're so silly. You'd never break the arm of the number one player in the world. But, seriously, you're joking right? Rory, I can't tell if he's joking or not so you better just plan to play next March. I know he's 83 now but let's not test The King's follow through.

Mr. Palmer's tournament is, like Quail Hollow and the Memorial, one of the most important non-majors on the PGA Tour. I cannot think of any pro golfer that would deliberately bypass Bay Hill, but it was worth a few laughs.
