Johnny Miller Weighs In On Rory McIlroy’s Struggles
Leave it to Johnny Miller. Apparently he has the all the answers, even if nobody is asking him questions.

As a professional athlete he should be able to manage his emotions and not allow them to impact his performance. McIlroy has also been in this relationship for several months now, so he certainly should have been able to adjust to life as a man in love.
At this point the reasons that McILroy is struggling really don’t matter. What matters is that he gets things turned around.
