Rory and his tee time

Rory and his tee time

  •  

    Can you believe that Rory almost missed his tee time and tries to blame the Golf Channel for reporting the tee times as EDT.

  •  

    Why wasn't there a team meeting at the course? Why didn't the captain and caddie call him? Even if he thought his time was an hour later he still would have been close!

  •  

    I was shocked when I learned of this.  I agree with Colin Montgomerie's comment on TV that the team dropped the ball on this one.  Someone, anyone, should have been ensuring that everyone was there and ready to go well in advance of tee times.  

  •  

    Nobody called him is shocking ? he made though and played well.

  •  

    Doesn't Rory have people that handle that kind of stuff? I will be his time keeper for 100,000 a year. That's a deal.

  •  

    He was probably watching cartoons on Nick.  They do get engrossing.

    Duh, Rory. You should be way early for the Ryder Cup anyway, insuring plenty of time for practice putting, the range, clothes change etc.. Also I agree; there should be a staffer that guarantees everyone is present and accounted for when required.

    With all the rest of you ... just staggered this could happen ... or almost happen.

    UNBELIEVABLE!

    Looks like there's a staff of thousands and then the associated hangers on aswell.

    Heard he got a police escort to get him there on time.  Too bad that officer didn't make a "wrong turn".

  •  

    i would think the team would have someone who asked what time each player planned to be at the course.  he planned to get there about 1 to 1 1/2 hours early.  plenty of time to warm up and get there.  when it got to an hour before and he wasn't there, someone should have been calling him or his caddy to find out what was going on.

  •  

    I'm surprised the GC hasn't interviewed the State Trooper yet.  Rory should send him a set of clubs if he's a golfer.  

  •  

    Given the results, it is no longer "the story" at this time.

    It would be interesting to hear the story from both the officer and Rory as to what and why this happened.

    -ICONs for ALL

    Spongebob marathon.  :)

    Rory is setting a bad example for all weekend hacks.  Now everyone in my group will start showing up even later than they already do.

    I noticed that Golf channel was doing something weird with the times. I live on the west coast though and I always check the time zone time stuff because they always mess around on TV with that stuff. 

    Or you could look at the other way he was playing "ready golf " just get up, run to the course and hit the ball.

    I'm not sure what brand of watch Rory has but if I was him I would have set it to local time as I got off the aircraft. This is day three, he was on time for the previous days' rounds: something is not quite holding water here. In his defence  he play's marvelous golf when he doesn't practice too much, he holed putts he was missing in the previous rounds.
