Rory McIlroy (Northern Ireland) lost 3 million dollars (approximately 3.999 billion won) for not attending the RBC Heritage of the PGA Tour for no apparent reason.

On the 4th (Korean time), foreign media such as the Associated Press and ESPN quoted PGA Tour Commissioner Jay Monohan as saying, “McIlroy will receive $9 million, a 25% cut from the $12 million bonus for second place in the Player Impact Index last season. ”he said.

A PGA Tour player cannot attend more than two of the 12 special tournaments with a total prize pool of 20 million dollars without compelling reasons such as injury.크크크벳

McIlroy did not compete at RBC Heritage following the Sentry Tournament of Champions in January this year.

Sentry Tournament of Champions did not apply to participate in the first place, but RBC Heritage even applied for participation, but withdrew right before the tournament.

The reason for his absence is unknown, but it is highly likely that it was the shock of missing the cut at the Masters.
