Ewan Murray at East Lake
- McIlroy says of on-course abuse: ‘Some of it crosses the line’
- ‘He has been getting a pretty rough go of it of late’
Rory McIlroy has offered public support to the much-maligned Bryson DeChambeau, saying it is “sad to see” widespread criticism of the American golfer.
Comments aimed at DeChambeau have prompted the PGA Tour this week to warn spectators they will be ejected from venues should they disrespect the Californian. DeChambeau is known to have been wounded by recurring controversy linked to his recent withdrawal from regular appearances before the media.
