Rory McIlroy admits Tokyo 2020 Olympics is ‘not much to look forward to’

In spite of this, McIlroy sees this large amount of free time as the perfect opportunity to tune up his golf game ahead of the remainder of the 2021 season, that includes the Ryder Cup at Whistling Straits this September.

He added: “I’m looking forward to getting another week’s golf in and trying to get my game in shape, and as I said there is not much else to do there so 12 hours a day at the course hopefully I get my game in a bit better shape.

McIlroy will be one of 60 competitors competing in this year’s Men’s golf event, and travels to Tokyo second in the Olympic Golf Ranking, behind world-number-one Jon Rahm of Spain.

Men’s golf will get underway at Kasumigaseki Country Club in Tokyo next week, with the first round of play beginning on Wednesday, July 28 at 11.30pm BST.
