Every time I hear that I think of a money shot. Should I seek counseling?

I was playing at the weekend with a couple of doctors. Their view was simple. Rory and his empire probably sought advice from the best medical team(s) that money can buy. The questions were probably,

"Can you categorically assure us that Rory will not contract any form of virus while playing in Rio? Can you tell us exactly what the potential side effects are to both Rory and his partner? What exactly is the level of risk?"

And the answers to all three questions are "We don't know for sure!"

So the advice is then "Don't go Rors, too risky!"

It's a sad state as the Olympics is such a huge gig, but I think golf is the least of the IOCC's worries. But someone is going to win that gold medal.
