McIlroy’s ‘Special Tournament’ RBC Heritage did not participate… Giving up the PIP Bonus?
World No. 3 Rory McIlroy has withdrawn from participating in the PGA Tour RBC Heritage.
The PGA Tour RBC Heritage will be held at Harbortown Golf Links in Hilton Head, South Carolina, USA for four days from the 13th (Korean time). The total prize money is 20 million dollars (26.37 billion won) and the winning prize is 3.5 million dollars (4.6 billion won).
In particular, RBC Heritage is one of the 17 ‘special competitions’ in which top players are obliged to participate in order to evaluate the Player Impact Program (PIP).토스카지노
McIlroy was scheduled to participate in this event, but withdrew on the 11th. The exact reason for his absence was not clear. However, the dominant interpretation is that it is the shock of being eliminated from the Masters Cut, which ended on the 10th.
McIlroy, who reached the top of the major tournaments, the US Open and the PGA Championship The Open, could achieve the career grand slam only by reaching the top of the Masters.
McIlroy also expressed his strong will to win, and experts also cited him as a strong candidate for the championship. However, McIlroy missed the cut in the second round of the Masters with a 5-over-par 149 after losing 5 strokes.
It seems that McIlroy will not be able to receive bonuses based on the player impact index as he does not participate in RBC Heritage. This is because he will not receive bonuses based on the Player Impact Index if he misses 2 or more special events without a valid reason. Already, McIlroy was absent from the Sentry Tournament of Champions held in January.
McIlroy, who ranked second in the player influence index following Tiger Woods last year, received a bonus of 12 million dollars (15.87 billion won).
