• Speed up game to attract youngsters – McIlroy


    LONDON: World number one Rory McIlroy said on Tuesday (Wednesday in Manila) that golf should be made quicker at grassroots level in order to attract more young players to the sport. “So you maybe try some way of speeding the game up. People enjoy watching the game, but gone are the days that you could spend five or six hours on a golf course,” McIlroy said. While golf’s rule-makers have a reputation for conservatism, McIlroy says it would be in their interest to attract more young people to the sport.
