SAN FRANCISCO – Rory McIlroy is focused on defending his U.S. Open title this week. But that can wait a couple more days.
Right now, he’s more concerned with throwing out the first pitch Tuesday night at the San Francisco Giants game against the Houston Astros.
“I definitely would rather get booed at a baseball game than on a golf course,” McIlroy said Tuesday at The Olympic Club. “I’ve been throwing a few golf balls on the course, threw a few medicine balls around last night at the gym.
“I don’t know whether to play it conservatively and just lob it into his hand or go for the fast one. I’m not sure.”
