Rory McIlroy:  IRISH or BRITISH?
      "It would be a huge honour to represent your country.  It would be a great achievement to win a gold medal,"  - Rory McIlroy

         Rory McIlroy has now decided not to declare which team he would represent in the Olympics until he has to.  Two years ago the 22-year-old said it would be Great Britain and Northern Ireland if he qualifies for golf's return to the Games in Rio de Janeiro in 2016.  
          But all Northern Irish citizens can opt for Ireland and the US Open champion said: "I still don't know. Basically, if I am going to be very honest, which I usually am, whatever I say is going to upset someone." 
          If he is in the world's top 15 at the cut-off point McIlroy would be guaranteed a place in the 60-strong field and he is certainly looking forward to the possibility.
