McIlroy glad to be wrong about Rio

FARMINGDALE, N.Y. (AP) This is one time Rory McIlroy says he was happy to be mistaken.

McIlroy was among the top four players in the world who chose not to play in the Olympics, and the four-time major champion didn't help the cause when he said it was not his role to grow the game and that he would only watch "the stuff that matters" on television.

He did watch the golf - at least the final hole, when Justin Rose outlasted Henrik Stenson to win golf's first gold medal in 112 years.
