Rory McIlroy looks set to retain his European Tour membership for 2019 after all amid claims he will play a minimum four tournaments.
It appeared the Northern Irishman was set to turn his back on the European Tour in 2019 and instead concentrate on playing regularly in the US but it seems he may have had a change of heart.

The Irish Mirror has claimed following talks in Belfast with the Tour’s Chief Executive, Keith Pelley, McIlroy will now commit to four regular European events next year to ensure his membership.
It was reported recently the 29-year-old had opted to only take in the Scottish Open and European Masters in 2019, missing the early season Desert Swing and Rolex Series events like the Irish Open and BMW PGA Championship, with McIlroy quoted as saying at the time: “I want to play against the strongest fields week in and week out, and for the most part of the season that is in America.”
However, the latest reports say he plans to play in two of the Dubai Desert Classic, Irish Open and BMW PGA Championship as he revises his plans.
McIlroy will be looking to extend his major haul beyond four this season and starts his new campaign in January in Hawaii at the Tournament of Champions.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
