Rory McIlroy's $10 million challenge

Here's how he has been tucking into it

Rory McIlroy's $10 million challengeSpeaking ahead of this week’s first FedEx Cup playoff event, Rory McIlroy had this to say about what his winning cheque for $10 million in last year’s event was used for.

“Had a wedding to pay for. We’re just renovating a house, so that’s going to take up a bit of that, as well. Wouldn’t mind winning it again.”

He continued:

“It’s nice to have it. Yeah, I didn’t treat myself to anything, really. I think that’s because I’ve got an influence in my life now, which is my wife, who would be a little more cautious with money than I would be. It’s nice to have that yin and yang a little bit. Nothing so far. We just bought a new home in Florida and we are just starting to renovate it. That will take out a chunk of it.”

With the start he has made at the Northern Trust, he has got to play a bit of catch up if he’s going to get his hands on the $10 million again this year. He started out with a 73, but then slotted in a 68 to leave him T61.
