"He's got to be intelligent and find the right wife"

The latest older major champion to offer Rory McIlroy
The nine-time major champion gave the two-time major champion (and defending PGA Championship champion) two pieces of advice: 1) play more, and 2) find the right wife.
"I love Rory McIlroy, he's got talent like you can't believe but I was quite perturbed when I saw him win the US Open and then the next tournament that he played was one month later.I wonder if Caroline Wozniacki knows she's being blamed almost as much for Rory's poor form as his equipment change?
If Gary truly loves Rory and wants the best for him, then why is he giving advice through the media? Pick up and phone and call the Ulsterman, Gary!

You might think that Mr. Player is being snarky, but in reality, he has a point. The girl I was married to interfered with my college homework and studying, interfered with some badly needed sleep I needed before a studio recording session, and of course basically kept me from playing golf for eight years.
And if I ever get my Christian-themed novel published, you'll be able to read "the hamster story." It's a doozy.
"It is better to live alone in the desert
than with a quarrelsome, complaining wife."

Sorry Gary. I was fortunate to find the right wife and we are going on 50 years come Sept. 28th. She has been supportive of my golf habit but it didn,t improve my golf very much. That said I wouldn't trade the years for anything else.Like the old saying goes. " A happy,happy wife makes a happy, happy life". Or something like that.
what's wrong with putting life ahead of your job?
Gary has said a lot of obnoxious stuff before but this time he has finally gone too far.
@badcaddy, nothing at all so long as one is completely aware of the fact that's what they're doing. These Pro's need to be focused and practice, and if his life is more important than winning Majors, nothing wrong with that.
