For World No. 2 Rory McIlroy, a cost of golf greatness, during slightest for Tiger Woods, was only too steep.

In a extensive talk with a Irish Independent, McIlroy pronounced he wouldn’t adopt Woods’s lifestyle even if it meant enjoying Woods’s success.

“I’ve seen what his life is like in Florida,” McIlroy said. “I’ve played golf with him and said: ‘What are we doing tonight? Do we wish to come and have cooking with us?’ And he can’t. He only can’t. And for me that’s unfathomable. we could not live like that … If someone was to say, ‘You can have 14 majors and 70 wins though have to understanding with that, or 9 majors and 40 wins and stay rather a same as we are’, I’d take a second choice all day.”

McIlroy cited Woods’s insomnia, that he thinks is a byproduct of Woods’s severe examination schedule, as only one approach a 14-time vital winner’s rival fires bake too hot.

“He’s an intriguing impression since we could spend dual hours in his association and see 4 opposite sides to him,” McIlroy said. “When he’s gentle and he trusts we — and his trust (sensitivity) is approach (higher) than cave — he’s great. He’s thoughtful. He’s smart. He reads. He can’t nap so that’s all he does — he reads things and educates himself on everything. But he struggles to sleep, that we consider is an outcome of overtraining, so we tell him to ease down sometimes. He’d be texting me during 4 o’clock in a morning: ‘Up lifting. What are we doing?'”
