Certainly not a fault Americans can ever be accused of.
Interesting, I think he will play for Ireland in the end, not because of the flag carrying shenanigans, but because he was born there, and so were his parents. He may feel more British, but that isn't necessarily who he'll play for. Like said above, GMAC will probably also have a talk with him about it.
It's a mess and skipping the Olympics would solve it from that point of view.

Yea being born in Northern Ireland, and having that whole battle between Ireland and British connection is tough. If i was Rory, i would seriously consider stepping out on this one. I am not sure if violence will pick up again, but he is a sports icon over there, and when you rub people the wrong way, especially over something as fresh as this topic, i think its best to just not rile things up.
Doesn't matter. The Olympic golf course in Brazil is not going to be completed on time. They supposedly have grass growing.
