When it comes to golf and, indeed, Rory McIlroy, I operate a system of benign indifference – if there is nothing else on the telly I'd probably watch them, but that would be the extent of it.

And I suspect that most of us who aren't golf nuts feel pretty much the same way – it's a perfectly pleasant walk in the park which is, according to those in the know, completely addictive.

And as for McIlroy? Well, he displays the ruthless, unforgiving demeanour of a winner – something that is all too often mistaken for rudeness by stupid people – and everyone I know wishes him nothing but the best.
