One of the most vocal critics of LIV Golf’s breakaway league, Rory McIlroy felt drained late last year and decided to leave his clubs for a few weeks.

“It’s been nice,” said the top-ranked McIlroy, “to try to take a little time off and kind of get away from the game of golf.”

Now she is back and looks as fiery as ever.

McIlroy was driving at the Dubai Desert Classic on Tuesday when he was approached by Patrick Reed, one of the top players to join the Saudi-backed series that will change the face of golf in 2022.

McIlroy said he was busy practicing and didn’t feel the need to recognize Reed.

“Patrick came over to say hi, and I really didn’t want him to say that,” McIlroy said Wednesday.

McIlroy was asked about the rumors that the American threw a metal plate at him. The four-time major winner said he couldn’t see or feel anything.
