Rory McIlroy has revealed his biggest pet peeve on the PGA Tour is when golf fans who have been sat by the green all day comment on the break, or lack of, a putt.
McIlroy, 34, was speaking to the media ahead of starting three strokes back of Scottie Scheffler at the Tour Championship as he goes in search of winning his fourth FedEx Cup at famed East Lake this week.
The record FedEx Cup holder was initially asked by a reporter what he made of a spectator shouting out in the middle of Max Homa's putting stroke at the BMW Championship last week.
This was allegedly due to the fan gambling, to which Homa called him a 'clown'.

While McIlroy is all for golf fans having fun outside the ropes, he believes golf betting could prove something of a "slippery slope" if the PGA Tour is not careful.
World No.2 McIlroy then went on to speak about his biggest pet peeve with golf fans on the PGA Tour.
While it has nothing to with golf gambling as such, it does have something to do with so-called analysts sat beside the green.
