Rory McIlroy sacks caddie who inspired first-round comeback at the Open

Rory McIlroy sacks caddie who inspired first-round comeback at the Open

Rory McIlroy has fired long-time caddy J.P. Fitzgerald, according to reports.

"You're Rory McIlroy, what the f*** are you doing?"

Diamond, who knows his way around a golf course, also helped his pal with his shaky putting a year ago.

"JP, he reminded me who I was, basically".

Following the attack, India had said talks with Pakistan can not take place unless it stops cross-border terrorism. It is the third time that the 67-year-old veteran politician's term as premier has been cut short.

The four-time Major victor is slight favourite for the US PGA with some bookmakers despite failing to claim one of golf's four big titles since the same tournament in 2014.

The four-time major champion is said to have brought his nine-year relationship with Fitzgerald to an end.

"JP did a great job", McIlroy said after recovering from five over after six to record a one-over round.

McIlroy finished the Open in a tie for fourth place.

Speaker Sumitra Mahajan urged the House to calmly cooperate and not create havoc. The Congress has called the suspension "harsh".

In fact, Fitzgerald was not happy with his own performance on that occasion at Augusta but clearly learned, and the bond he and McIlroy established in adversity certainly paid dividends in the stressful moments that followed over the years.

Although Fitzgerald will no longer be on McIlroy's bag, he still earned quite a bit of money this year. Indeed had McIlroy not won at the US Open in 2011, just two months after his Masters collapse, Fitzgerald might have gone then as McIlroy's advisors at the time, ISM, sought to fix the damage of Augusta.

The wire service is reporting that McIlroy will confirm the news upon arrival to Firestone Country Club this week where he is set to play the Bridgestone Invitational. "He was with me when I was No210 in the world and when I was No1". The Irish caddie has benefited hugely from that partnership, but had been the subject of criticism from sections of the media due to perceived failings, partiuclarly in the aftermath of McIlroy's collapse at the 2011 Masters Tournament.
