Gary Player Bolts From Gate In The Blame Caroline Stakes

It was only a matter of time, but at least Gary Player didn't invoke a Yoko reference in suggesting that young Caroline Wozniacki isn't helping Rory McIlroy's golf game.

Speaking to My Sporting Life (you can listen to a 1:30 excerpt too):

“When you’re in love as a young man naturally golf seems to take second place for a while. It’s natural. Love is still the greatest thing that ever happens in our lives.

“But the thing is for a man like Rory with talent galore he’s got to make sure he has a woman like I’ve got, who has been married [to me] for 56 years, that has only encouraged me to do well and made sacrifices.

“He’s got to be intelligent and find the right wife. If he finds the right wife, if he practices and if he’s dedicated, he could be the man.”
