- McIlroy unaware of object thrown at him by American
- World No 1 had court papers served by Reed on Christmas Eve
Rory McIlroy has insisted he was well within his rights to ignore Patrick Reed on a Dubai driving range after reports surfaced that the American had tossed a golf tee at the world No 1 in disgust. McIlroy revealed he was served court papers by Reed at his Florida home on Christmas Eve.
Reed approached McIlroy on Monday at the Dubai Desert Classic but was blanked by the Northern Irishman. McIlroy was unaware of any subsequent object-throwing but used his pre-tournament press conference to explain his stance towards Reed.
