Rory McIlroy wasn’t too impressed with a reporter after he was questioned about his alleged feud with a fellow golfer, Patrick Reed.
There seems to be a real conflict between McIlroy and Reed after the two had a bit of a run-in at the Emirates Golf club on Tuesday.
Video emerged of Reed approaching McIlroy on the driving range only for the Irish golfer to completely blank him, this led to the American throwing a tee towards him.

McIlroy was then asked about the reporter in a very long and quite awkward manner.
His reply or non-reply was brutal.

The feud was started due to the divide between PGA and LIV golf players, which McIlroy has been outspoken on.
He would later go on to say that he did not see the tee that was thrown his way.
“So, I didn’t see a tee coming my direction at all, but apparently that’s what happened. And if roles were reversed and I’d have thrown that tee at him, I’d be expecting a lawsuit.” he answered.
What do you make of the conflict?
