Rory McIlroy has been labeled a ‘cry baby’ by a PGA Tour pro who has not won in the ring in 10 years after the Northern Irishman claimed that players who joined LIV Golf “left their legacy behind”.

Charlie Bilgan jumped at a social media post by Bunkered about McIlroy’s comments about feeling “betrayed” by some players’ decisions to join the breakaway tour, which wrapped up its inaugural season in Miami last weekend.

Dustin Johnson won 4 aces 50 million dollars Tag Team Championship at Trump National Doral with Pat Perez, Taylor Gooch and Patrick Reed all split 16 million dollars.

Then, Johnson rallied in a public display of affection with his glamorous wife Paulina Gretsky after he screwed up his nerves on a multimillion-dollar hit.

But back to Bilgan, who replied: “The biggest baby is definitely crying.”

McIlroy was, of course, at the center of the LIV Golf vs. PGA Tour battle.

LIV Golf launched in June but since early February the Northern Irish have been expressing strong opinions.

If Bilgan’s name rings a bell, it’s because it was around this time last year that the 38-year-old got into hot water after refusing to get a COVID-19 vaccine ahead of the Butterfield Bermuda Championship.

He had to delete his social media rant in a hurry. Bilgan is currently ranked 2818 Points below McIlroy in the rankings.

What did McIlroy say?

McIlroy previously gave an extensive interview to The Guardian where he talked about the implications of LIV Golf for the Ryder Cup Europe.

He said:

“I think it’s the first time in my life that I’ve felt betrayed in some way. It’s an unfamiliar feeling to me. You build bonds with these people through Ryder Cups and other things. They know that what they are about to do will put them at risk of being a part of That again?There was a great chance for GMac to be captain at Adare in 2027. Much of Sergio’s legacy rests on the Ryder Cup, as is the case with Poulter, Westwood.

“I would like to think that the Ryder Cup means to them as much as it does to me. Maybe it is. But knowing what the consequences could be, I can never make that decision. Well, it might not be 100 percent certain but could you be The result? It’s not just a step I would be willing to take. I thought they felt the same way.

“I feel like the place where they’ve been able to build their legacy and build their brand, they’ve just been left behind. You can make the same argument about me, I started in Europe and went to America but I’ve always been a supporter of the traditional system. If people feel so wronged about some things, I’m I’d rather try to make these changes from within the walls than try to go outside and get confused.”

These comments seemed to baffle Ian Poulter.

Poulter said of McIlroy’s comments:

“I mean, look, my commitment to the Ryder Cup which I think is in place before me. I don’t think that should ever be in question. I’ve always wanted to play the Ryder Cups and I’ve played with as much passion as anyone else. I’ve seen him play the Ryder Cup before.”

“You know, I don’t know where that comment really came from, to be honest.”

The Englishman tasted disappointment at the LIV Championship in Miami as Majesticks GC crashed early.

However, he caused some uproar as he told the American after defeating Kevin Na on the first day: “And you, basically.”
