JapanNorthern Ireland golfer Rory McIlroy raises questions for not wearing a hat when competing for an Olympic medal on East Kasumigaseki par71.

“My head is small, so the uniform hat does not fit. Any team award is the same. I usually have to use a hat prepared by Nike sponsors,” McIlroy explained in a brief exchange. Twitter July 29 with Sean Martin from the PGA Tour.

And despite not wearing a hat, the golfer born in 1989 still wore the uniform of the Irish golf team when competing at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.

McIlroy did not attend Rio 2016 because of the Zika virus. This time, in addition to the national mission, he came to Tokyo because he wanted to promote golf with personal prestige.

The opening round on July 29, McIlroy hit 69 strokes, standing at T20 at -2, six strokes behind the top of the table. In the second round, he flourished, with an eagle, five birdies and two bogeys on the 66-stroke scoreboard. After 36 holes, McIlroy scored -7, four strokes behind Xander Schauffele’s first place.

And because of the smaller-than-standard head size and the binding of the promotion contract, McIlroy also did not wear a hat at the Ryder Cup – the most attractive team golf tournament in the world.

He has played five times in a row for the European team, playing a total of 24 matches in which 11 wins and 9 defeats. Due to Covid-19, the 2020 Ryder Cup was postponed to September 21 of this year. At that time, the US will take on Europe at the Whistling Straits field in Wisconsin. The two sides closed the lineup on September 12. McIlroy is ranked fifth on the Ryder Cup scorecard this season. The race to choose the top 4 of the Race to Dubai table of the European Tour and the top 5 of Europe on OWGR, the remaining three places are decided by captain Padraig Harrington.
