Rory McIlroy reveals biggest 'pet peeve' in golf

Rory Mc Ilroy

Rory McIlroy has revealed details of his biggest ‘pet peeve’ about golf – and it’s got nothing to do with slow play, the rules or anything else that you might expect.

In a post on Instagram, the four-time major winner expressed his dislike for the word ‘golf’ being used as a ‘verb’, as in ‘to golf’.

For example: “I golfed on Friday”, or “I like to golf”.
