Rory McIlroy has asked his fellow professionals to give the USGA a chance at Pebble Beach

  • Rory McIlroy wants the USGA to be given a chance after a bad last few years 
  • McIlroy was among those who had considered boycotting the US Open 
  • The USGA’s flagship event has encountered a number of problems since 2015 

Rory McIlroy has set the stakes high for the error-prone organisers of the US Open by declaring: ‘If they can’t redeem themselves at Pebble Beach next month, then there could be a problem.’

Like everyone else, the Northern Irishman has been left aghast by the fact every recent US Open has been tarnished by incompetence on the part of the United States Golf Association.

There was even a Golf Digest article out this week where one player claimed that McIlroy, alongside Dustin Johnson, tried to organise a boycott in 2016 – although how much credence you give to a piece in which all the players speak on condition of anonymity is open to debate.
