After winning the FedEx Cup, Rory McIlroy continued to criticize LIV Golf.

Rory McIlroy slams LIV Golf

Over the past few years, with the introduction of the LIV Golf Series and the threat that the new circuit poses to the PGA Tour, 

McIlroy has assumed the role of de facto player face of the PGA Tour, a position he claimed came somewhat naturally to him.

Even though McIlroy won the Tour Championship on Sunday at East Lake Golf Club, his opinion of LIV Golf hasn't substantially changed.

"I hate what it's done to the game of golf. I really do. It's gonna be hard for me to stomach going to Wentworth and seeing 18 of them there. It just doesn't sit right with me."

Rory going deep on LIV:

"I hate what it's done to the game of golf. I hate it. I really do," McIlroy said following the Tour Championship. 

"It's gonna be hard for me to stomach going to Wentworth in a couple weeks' time and seeing 18 of them there. It just doesn't sit right with me.

"I feel strongly. I believe what I'm saying are the right things, and I think that when you believe what you're saying are the right things, you're happy to stick your neck out on the line."

McIlroy has been outspoken in his criticism of the contentious Saudi-funded golf league that has stolen some of the most illustrious players from the PGA Tour.
