• Golfers have been reacting to the news
• Rory McIlroy asks for 2016 'mulligan'
Professional golfers and others within the industry have been reacting to the news that the United Kingdom has voted for Brexit.
This morning it was announced that the United Kingdom had voted in favour of leaving the European Union with 51.9% of the electorate supporting Brexit.
The full extent of the implications for golf (if any) are yet to be fully determined, but some of the game’s leading players and coaches have been sharing their thoughts in the immediate aftermath of the Brexit result.
Four-time major winner and Northern Irishman Rory McIlroy was one of the first to comment, and it appears he’d give up his Irish Open victory to start 2016 all over again.
European Ryder Cup vice captain Thomas Bjorn had held a poll on his Twitter account on Wednesday ahead of the referendum with the majority replying in favour of the ‘Remain’ campaign.
After the result was announced, however, he wasn’t especially enamoured with what the future could hold.
Pablo Larrazabal, a four-time winner on the European Tour, was one of the first to ask questions relating to golf.
He has no need to worry, though, as there are no immediate effects on laws following the result and you just have to be a member of the European Tour to represent them in the Ryder Cup.
Top golf coach and Sky Sports golf pundit Denis Pugh has been particularly vocal on the Brexit vote, first requesting a ‘Best of 3’ vote…
And then a Paul McCartney song that will be particularly poignant for supporters of the ‘Remain’ campaign.
