RORY MCILROY might not go for the gold.
The world No. 1, in an upcoming BBC documentary featuring the 23-year-old from Holywood, Northern Ireland, said he might play for Great Britain, Ireland or no one in the 2016 Olympics.
McIlroy is in an uncomfortable position as he faces a dilemma involving potential political repercussions when golf returns to the Olympics in Brazil.
"I just think being from where we're from, we're placed in a very difficult position. I feel Northern Irish and obviously being from Northern Ireland you have a connection to Ireland and a connection to the UK. If I could and there was a Northern Irish team, I'd play for Northern Ireland," McIlroy says in the documentary.
"Play for one side or the other, or not play at all because I may upset too many people. ... Those are my three options I'm considering very carefully."
