McIlroy out of step in disparaging Rio golf

I am very disappointed in Rory McIlroy's comments on Olympic golf.

He has become a very wealthy man through his golfing ability. He is certainly free to decide not to play in the Olympics.

But why disparage Olympic golf? It is not primarily driven by financial interests and it is also a very worthwhile ambition for young golfers to aim for Olympic selection and to proudly represent their country.
