I’m a big Rory guy. He’s a four-time major winner and his swing is the best in the business, yet all the dude wants to do is throw up heavy ass weight in the gym. As a workout enthusiast myself, I respect the hell out of that lifestyle and my fandom only increases seeing the progression he’s making into a full-blown meathead with each passing day. It’s something the tour has been in desperate need of with the Tiger void. You can tell he’s at the point where he’s made some decent natural gains, but body dysmorphia is starting to set in and he’s obsessively trying to stack mass. We’ve all been there: realizing the natty diet has a ceiling and the allure of a few cycles of Mexican candy is a very real dilemma. Especially when Rory himself thinks the PGA Tour’s testing policy is an absolute joke.
“I could use HGH and get away with it,” McIlroy said. “So I think blood testing is something that needs to happen in golf just to make sure that it is a clean sport going forward … If golf is in the Olympics and golf wants to be seen as a mainstream sport as such, it has to get in line with the other sports that test more rigorously.”
Classic move by Rory: hiding in plain sight. This is essentially O.J. Simpson writing If I Did It. Rory’s pumping himself full of juice right in front of golf officials’ faces and there’s not a damn thing they can do about it. Love it.
But forget testing golfers or any athlete for that matter. We should encourage the world’s elite to use. Don’t we all want the best chemically-enhanced product money can buy? Don’t we all want Tiger to make one last run? Let’s turn a blind eye, have him pop HGH like tic tacs, and get him back for the PGA Championship..
