Rory McIlroy wishes he had gone on vacation with Fowler, Spieth, Smylie, Thomas


Rory McIlroy could have been a part of #SB2K16, and after seeing the fun Rickie Fowler organized with Jordan Spieth, Smylie Kaufman and Justin Thomas, the Ulsterman wonders if he should have gone along for the ride.

As it turns out, McIlroy had already planned a post-Masters vacation in Barbados with fiancee Erica Stoll, so the former world No. 1 had to politely decline. Besides, McIlroy and Stoll probably had some things to discuss about marriage plans, etc.

Sooo, do you spend a week with your fiancee at the peak of your happiness together? Or do you down a personal keg of beer and play fun, drunk golf while you broadcast it on Snapchat?

It's a close one, but McIlroy made the right choice.
