What is the quality of today's players in Europe compared to the past?

That is difficult. Because we had a great time, of course, when it was a real foundation of the European Tour – the famous five: Seve [Ballesteros] myself, Sandy [Lyle] Woosie [Ian Woosnam] and [Bernhard] Langer. And then we are accompanied by [José María] Olazábal and by Monty [Colin Montgomerie].

By the time they formed the world ranking, it was as if five of the first eight in the world were European boys. Today, Europe made a very strong run, but ours was a very important time because it was a bit like forming the tour.

Rory McIlroy has not won a major in five years.

Isn't that great? When he was busy with that, his dominance, everyone ran to me and said: & # 39; What will he win? & # 39; I said: & # 39; You know what, maybe you're disappointed that he only wins 19 majors. Or he will be ecstatic to get to five. We do not know. "And now he will be ecstatic to reach another one. He has had an incredible opportunity with the crowd [in Northern Ireland]. Maybe the wave of that can really motivate him. He has the talent.

Who is your favorite for the British Open?

I keep looking at the weather, it's raining every day, so you have to believe it's going to be a very physical week, the physical man right now is Brooks [Koepka] He will go over it and prepare for it.

I think the Irish boys, people like Shane Lowry, will be lifted, winning the Irish Open like an amateur on the fans wave. That is why Rory could step in and be carried away by the euphoria for him.

Are you going to perform it again? and I didn't like it, I thought I was making a big effort, and if you just did it not daily, competitive, does you really lose it. There is nothing worse than spending six meters the whole day for pars. You cannot score; it is hard work.
