The PGA’s ‘MCLLROY’ gaffe

As a former world number one and a four-time major winner, Rory McIlroy has every right to think that everyone on the PGA Tour would know who he is, and how to spell his name. As it turns out, those appear to be rather lofty expectations.

McIlroy teed off in the first round of the WGC-Cadillac Championship at Doral on Thursday with a caddie boasting tournament-provided attire that wasn’t quite up to scratch…

And they were nothing if not consistent…

We can see how perhaps the capital ‘I’ in ‘McIlroy’ could appear to the untrained eye to be an ‘l’, but we’re not so forgiving when those in question are in the golfing trade.

Not surprisingly, McIlroy was not hugely impressed.
