SAINT-QUENTIN-EN-YVELINES, France -- Rory McIlroy has no regrets about deciding not to go to the Rio de Janeiro Olympics because of concerns over the Zika virus, saying he and other golfers do not consider Olympic golf to be the pinnacle of their sport compared to playing in majors.We dream of winning Claret Jugs and we dream of winning green jackets, the four-time major winner said Wednesday.
