McIlroy accuses ex-agent Chandler of leading him down the wrong path
London: US Open Champion Rory McIlroy has accused former agent, Andrew "Chubby" Chandler of leading him down the wrong path through his company -- International Sports Management.
The Guardian quoted McIlroy, as saying: "I felt like the path I was going down wasn``t the path I wanted to go down."
McIlroy cited his decision in 2010 to give up his PGA Tour card, and skipping the Players Championship at Sawgrass in the same season, as among his biggest regrets.
"That`s another example of being involved with Chubby and ISM and maybe being led down the wrong path, or a path that I didn`t want to go down. It was something I sort of felt like I had to do. I think just spending a little bit of time around Chubby and Lee and hearing their view of the PGA Tour – obviously they`re very pro-European Tour – while I`ve always been one who wanted to play on the PGA Tour," he said.
