Rory McIlroy was not pleased with reporters on Wednesday after several of them pressed him over an explosive moment at the DP World Tour Championship last month when he ripped his shirt after a disastrous finish. 

During a press conference for the Hero World Challenge charity golf event, the very first comment McIlroy was hit with was the state of his attire.

On Wednesday, another reporter pressed further, asking how long it took to rip the shirt. 

“I mean, I pulled on my collar, and it ripped. I don’t know if I’ve ever done it before,” he said. 

McIlroy fielded other questions, but a brave soul decided to try their luck for the third time.

“I went to the pro shop, bought a new one, threw that one in the trash. I mean, this f—ing ripped shirt, Jesus,” the unamused golfer responded. 

McIlroy will be competing in the Hero Challenge at the Albany Golf Club in the Bahamas for the first time since 2013.
