Rory McIlroy’s decision to withdraw from the RBC Heritage this week is proving to be a costly one for the PGA Tour star.
After failing to make the cut at Augusta National last week, McIlroy announced he would be withdrawing from Hilton Head, a move typically expected from the Masters winner.
McIlroy did not offer an explanation, but he stands to lose $3 million as a result.
According to Sports Illustrated and Golf Channel, RBC Heritage marks the second tournament of the PGA Tour’s 17 designated events that members are required to play to cash in on the Player Impact Program (PIP).
