McIlroy will not burnout despite tough schedule

Despite U.S. Open champion Rory McIlroy facing nine tournaments in five countries over the next 11 weeks, he is not facing “burnout” according to his manager.

Asia is the first port of call on the McIlroy World Tour: Seoul today for the Korea Open and a One Asia Tour event and then to China for the October 10-16 China Golf Challenge.

Two days later the 22-year-old will jet off to the Caribbean and the Grand Slam of Golf in Bermuda and then a trip across the Atlantic to be with girlfriend Carolina Wozniacki who is competing in the WTA season-final in Istanbul from October 25-30.

The epic concludes with a flurry of dates on the Asia continent.

Three mainland China dates - the Shanghai Masters, the Sheshan WGC-HSBC Champions, the World Cup at Hainan Island – are up before his year culminates in the Hong Kong Open, the Dubai World Championship and Asia’s Tour Championship in Bangkok in December.

Despite the different time zones and air miles McIlroy will be chalking up, his manager Andrew “Chubby” Chandler thinks Rory will take it all in his stride.

"No, there's no concern of Rory suffering burnout simply because he's not playing golf for the lengthy period he's going to be away from home," Chandler told reporters.

"What Rory is undertaking is really no different to what happens throughout the year because in managing players like Lee and Rory they are getting invitations to play all over the place.

"He's played nine in the States proper and nine regular events on the European Tour so that's only 18 events.”
