This guy writes for Golf Digest, has his own blog and contributes to the 'State of the Game' podcast. A well-known 'journalist' and course critic. Here is what he said in the State of the Game Podcast dates 27/11/13 after Mike Clayton (Australian Professional and course architecture partner with Geoff Ogilvie) stated that Ogilvie rated McIlroy above Adam Scott after watching him playing at Royal Sydney.
''I’m writing him off next year if he’s going to continue this legal wrangling nonsense. I just don’t see how with the trial just a couple of weeks after the Ryder Cup, you are going to have a good year with all that looming. And when you see the details of what he is haggling over, what he’s mad about… I think it’s important because it does speak to…to how much this stuff. I mean, look at this guy with this amazing talent…and I understand what Geoff Ogilvie is saying, that he probably has more all-round talent than Adam Scott…the short game…the whole package...but look at how much this kind of thing can derail a player when they have that talent. It shows you how fickle the game can be.''
Since this McIlroy has won the Australian Open, the European PGA and now the Open Champonship.
These are the people that write on the game and broadcast over the internet.
My question is this - can I get a job?
